From the ROOM WITH THREE STAIRCASES AND SMALL POOL, head up the stairs to the west.
At the top is a colorfully painted anteroom with 4 hollow benches containing Uzi ammo...
...regular shotgun shells, wideshot shells, and a large medipack.
As you approach the entrance to the PYRAMID ROOM, another skeleton rises up in the doorway. Take it out with a grenade or explosive arrow.
Enter the room and save the game before sliding down any of the chutes. To avoid possible complications with the beetle bug mentioned in the main walkthrough, place the BLACK BEETLE you found in the ROOM WITH THE ISIS STATUE into one of the receptacles on the side of the carved pyramid. This causes that side of the pyramid to retract.
You can skip the CHUTE ON THE RIGHT (NORTH) SIDE, since there is only a useless BROKEN BEETLE artifact and some nastiness down there. But if you insist on covering everything (or have already slid down here and need to know what to do next), check the main walkthrough for more info.
Move to the MIDDLE (WEST) CHUTE, the one opposite the entrance.
Slide down the slope...
...jumping at the end to get a little more distance. Lara lands in a pool of oil. It's safe for now but won't be for long.
Flames creep down the grooves in the sloping sides of the pool.
So hurry to the far end and climb out before the oil ignites.
Use the CROWBAR to pry the BLACK BEETLE out of the wall.
Climb onto the ledge on either side. (Here we'll go to the left.)
Go around behind the stone archway to get back to the ramp, which turned into stairs when you took the beetle.
Take a standing jump-grab into the opening.
Then climb the stairs (or use a series of standing jumps from the edge of each block to the next) to get back to the PYRAMID ROOM.
To avoid complications with the possible beetle bug, place the BLACK BEETLE in one of the receptacles on the side of the pyramid now.
