Health Supplies: 0
Draw weapons and kill the swarm of spiders that come from the deep pit. Hang from the edge and release to grab the handhold below. Lara will grab it with one hand, so press the Interact button to help her. Release to grab the next handhold and notice the metal ring below. Release and quickly throw the Grapple to catch the ring. Descent if necessary and jump to the ground ahead. Then approach the stone door.
In the following cut scene, Lara approaches the stone door and something in her backpack starts to glow. She takes the gauntlet out, puts it on her hand and places her hand on the door. The engravings on the door start glowing as well, and she realises that she can move the entire stone door by herself. Lara assumes that it was the source of Thor's godlike strength.
After the cut scene, stand next to the door and press the Interact button to grab onto it. Press Left to open the door with the power of the gauntlet and go through it. Kill the swarm of spiders and proceed into the next room.
Room with Thor's statue and central structure - Cross the walkway.
The next cut scene shows Norse remnants underneath the Shiva temple. Nothing remains on the pedestal. The gauntlet, which was supposedly there, is gone. Looking at the walls, Lara notices an ancient engraved map that has been recently destroyed. According to the runes, the map was leading to Thor’s belt and hammer. Turning around, Lara inches closer to the pedestal and makes a rather peculiar discovery: the initials "RJC" have been carved into the stone, along with information about the gaunlet. "RJC" stands for Richard James Croft, Lara’s father, but he never used his middle name to avoid confusion with his own father. With this clue, Lara understands where her father hid the gauntlet. She decides to head back home.
The circular platform you are stating on and the walkway you crossed before is an entire wall mechanism that can be rotated. The goal here is to rotate the wall (and the walkway) towards the opening opposite the entrance which is the exit. The next part includes the retrieval of three Treasures and one Relic, eventually moving the wall towards the exit.
Going for the first Treasure - After the cut scene, turn around and cross back the walkway. (This page shows the retrieval of the Treasure.) When you reach the entrance, look for a metal ring on the right. Use the Grapple to catch it and jump to hand from the cable. Climb down the cable and drop to the ledge below (and next to the wall). Turn right and go to the other side of the ledge where you will find a Treasure (26/30).
Return back close to the wall and use the Grapple to catch the same metal ring you used before. Approach the column and press the Jump button to hang from the cable. Climb to the top and jump to the ledge on the left. Then cross the wallkway again to reach the circular platform with the empty pedestal.
Going for the second Treasure - (See this page for the sequence that follows.) Hang from the edge of the circular platform. Release many times to grab the handholds below until you reach the ledge. When you do that, you will hear the chime signaling the Treasure. Grab the panel in front you and move to the right as much as you can. That way, you move the panel and the entire wall. This will reveal a secret alcove behind the panel. Go to the left, enter the alcove and pick up the Treasure (27/30).
Exit the alcove and start climbing up the panel until you reach the circular platform with the empty pedestal. Once again, cross the walkway to the other side. As you can see, the walkway is no longer in front of the entrance.
Going for the third Treasure - (See this page for screenshots that show the process.) Hang from the left side of the walkway and approach the metal ring on the wall. Release and quickly throw the Grapple cable to catch the ring. Climb down a bit and wall run to reach the ledge on the left.
(Note about the wall run - If you have played Anniversary, you should know how this move works. If not, check the detailed description at the bottom of the page.)
Grab the wall and start pulling it. Keep pulling until you pass the third column on the left. Stop somewhere between the third and fourth pillar. That way, you will leave some space for Lara to go around the wall and reach the other side (behind the wall). Do that, grab the wall and push it to the end (until Lara stops). Release the wall and look to the left and above to spot the metal ring on the wall. Use the Grapple to catch it and wall run to reach the ledge in the middle of the room. Go left and jump the gap. Climb up the panel to reach the circular platform with the empty pedestal. Kill the flock of bats that attacks and cross the walkway. Jump to the ledge on the right and pick up the Treasure (28/30).
Return back to the walkway and notice that it is very close to the exit.
Aligning the walkway with the exit - Cross the walkway to reach the circular platform with the empty pedestal. Once again, climb down the panel to reach the ledge. Grab the panel and move to the right as much as you can to rotate the entire wall.
The brief cut scene shows that the walkway has been aligned with the exit.
Getting the Relic - Climb up the panel and cross the walkway, but do not leave yet!! If you do that, the gauntlet will lose its power and you will not be able to get the Relic.
(For visual guidance, see this page.) Go almost halfway across the walkway and hang from the left edge. Traverse close to the metal ring, release and quickly throw the Grapple cable to catch the ring. Climb down a bit and wall run to reach the ledge on the left. Grab the wall and pull it. Keep pulling until you pass the first column on the left. Stop somewhere between the first and second pillar. That way, you will leave some space for Lara to go around the wall and reach the other side (behind the wall). Do that, grab the wall and push it to the end (until Lara stops).
Use the Grapple to catch the metal ring on the wall and wall run to reach the ledge in the middle of the room. Go left and jump the gap. Climb up the panel to reach the circular platform with the empty pedestal. Cross the walkway and go left behind Thor's left shoulder. Pick up the Relic and return back to the circular platform.
Aligning the walkway with the exit/ Time to leave - You will again align the walkway with the exit and this time you will leave. Climb down the panel to reach the ledge. (See this page for visual guidance.) Go to the right and jump the gap. Use the Grapple to catch the metal ring on the wall and wall run to reach the opposite side. Now you are on the ledge where you pulled\ pushed the wall before. Now pull the wall until the first column. That way, there will be a small part of the ledge that Lara can land on after swinging back. Use the Grapple to catch the ring and wall run across. Jump the gap and go to the other side of the ledge around to the right. Jump to grab the panel and climb to the top. Cross the walkway and jump to the exit.
In a short cut scene, Lara discovers that the power of the gauntlet is drained and wonders how Thor was charging it.
Wall Running - Like in Anniversary, Lara can run on the walls and reach far ledges by using her Grapple. To perform the wall run, a ring must be mounted on the wall. To activate the Grapple device, just press the Grapple button to catch the ring. Then jump to hang from the cable. You can maneuver Lara by having the camera either behind her (perpendicular to the wall) or to the side of her (parallel to the wall). However, the first way seems easier for many players.
Once you hang from the cable, position the camera behind Lara (perpendicular to the wall). Press the Left and Right direction keys (back and forth) to start the wall run and gain momentum. Let's say that the destination ledge is to your left. Once Lara reaches the highest point to the left, press Jump while having the Left button still compressed. Lara will release the Grapple line and jump to the left.
There are times where the destination ledge is behind Lara and diagonally to the left or right. For a successful jump, the procedure lightly differs. Let's say that the destination ledge is behind Lara and diagonally to the left. First, examine the position of the destination ledge comparably to the wall. Have in mind that when Lara reaches the highest point while wall-running, she must not exceed the position of the destination ledge. This means that you may have to climb up or down the Grapple line, so once Lara reaches the highest point while wall-running, the destination ledge should be behind her. This can be determined by trial and error. Once you catch the ring, perform the wall run as usual. When Lara wall-runs to the left, release the Left button when she reaches the highest point, and press Down and Jump to leap off the Grapple line and jump backwards.
