Keep Moving Forward to Survive
After Lara has been knocked out down at the beach, she regains consciousness tied up in a sack, suspended upside-down from the ceiling. To escape, start swinging sideways, left and right. You have to gain enough momentum to push the neighbouring sack into the burning torch on the altar. It catches fire and falls to the ground. The sail cloth on the wooden beam on the side catches fire as well. Start swinging sideways again, this time towards the burning beam, to set your own sack on fire. This will free Lara, but she's hurt by the fall. You need to pull out the metal splinter now stuck in her side. To do so press the action button displayed (PC: E, PS3/PS4: Square, Xbox 360/Xbox One:X) repeatedly till it's out. (Note the sack hanging in the corner, you could use fire to burn it and claim what's inside, but there is nothing in there that Lara can use, so there is no point in coming back here with a burning torch.) Then head into the tunnel, towards the light.
In the next cave you discover an unfortunate victim of the scavenger, and another empty but burnable sack. Grab a one of the two torches either left or right of the next tunnel opening. Follow the tunnel until you come to a blockade. Here use the fire to burn down the white cloth and thus destroy the barrier. Step through and squeeze through the narrow gap. The water will extinguish your torch. On the right cave wall you will find a little goblet of fire where you can relight your torch. Climb onto the wooden scaffolding on the left side and there use the relit torch to set the white cloth on fire. The flames will make their way over the the blockade and cause the barrel to explode. The path is now clear. Get down and over to the end to climb up into the opened passage. Sneak into the narrow tunnel. Lara is attacked by the scavenger. Shake him off with the movement buttons and you will escape for now. Crawl further along the tunnel and wade through the water to emerge in a large cavern.
Find a Way Out
Once again your torch is extinguished by the stream of water coming from the ceiling. Take note of the large mine and the barrels with on the left. Head over to the right area. On the right side you can light your torch once more. Set the two white cloths on fire to loosen the contraption. (You can also light up the flotsam now, instead of later.) Now the other cage will collect all the garbage coming downstream. Head up the ramp till you reach the first red board. Use this to jump over to the cage that moved upwards. Lara's weight pulls it down and the other cage, with the flotsam inside upwards. The items will tumble into another cage at the top end of the wooden walkway. Get back onto the wooden walkway and run up to the other crate. Set the flotsam on fire. Then push the cage, to send the burning flotsam down the chute, avoiding the waterfall which would extinguish the fire, and towards the mine. A big explosion will ensue. Head into the newly opened passage. The left is blocked off by falling rubble so head right. The floor will give out and send Lara hurling down a sloped passage. At the bottom do not wait for falling debris to kill you, instead immediately follow the tunnel and at the end jump across the gap. If necessary, pull up and also jump across the second gap. Once more and you are almost back in another passage. A boulder will fall down leaving only a narrow gap, and here the scavenger is back. Shake him once again and then give him a kick to get rid of him once and for all. Flee further through the tunnel. Jump across the last gap and then scramble up the steep slope. When the first boulder comes crashing down, escape to the left. Scramble further upwards. The second boulder is avoided by moving to the right. Continue up the tunnel to emerge outside from where you set off along the cliffside.
