Have your forward control ready as soon as the fmv finishes. Quickly jump over dive to the left and under and run and jump over the hole. It took me quite a few goes to get this done. Good luck! :thumbsup:

It's not an FMV, it's a flyby

What's a flyby?

I have succeed using uzigirl's approach and also by diving under the first, then diving under the 2nd on the left. Other tombraiders suggested diving under the first so I gave it a try and was surprised that it worked.

Sorry, but I don't even know how to dive I don't know any of those moves and plus I'm playing this on a psp and the camera is so off its hard to see where I'm going.

I don't know what the exact control layout is on the PSP (I have the PC version) but you "dive" by running (pressing forward) and tapping the crouch button. Lara should do a a forward roll under the spikes.

The second you are in control of Lara again (the action icon of Lara appears) run forward and quickly jump. Then immediately run to the left and perform the dive under the second set of spikes. Keep running forward through the door. I understand that it is easier said than done. It took me a couple of tries to get it right but keep at it.

Good Luck :D

Edit: it can a little frustrating the first time through the level. Everyone has had problems with this part at one time due to the camera issues that seems to exist in all tomb raider games.
