I slid down one side of the head onto the left arm. Lost a tiny bit of health in the process.

I think you're supposed to be able to grapple, but it never worked for me.

If you're careful, like Tomb Radar said, you can slide down... there's a ledge in the middle (under the face, I think? :scratch: ) that you can grab onto so you can drop down without getting hurt.

While a bit more difficult than most, it's very doable. Here's a pic of where I can make it work from. The rightmost point of the head dress. Face the direction in the picture, jump forward, and keep pressing grapple. She'll make it. Then you won't have to risk the minor damage from sliding off, the trek back up there, or having to fight the flying baddies again.

For future reference, you should consider more descriptive topic titles (most topics are seeking help). Also letting people know what stage you're talking about will help them help you. There's more than one sphinx in the game and I only knew which one you meant because you said Uzi.

Actually, you can just go back the way you came. The grapple point doesn't seem to light up until Lara is airborne. Just run and jump back towards the platform you jumped from to get onto the Sphinx and then, once Lara is in the air, hit the grapple button.

There's a platform? I can't speak for others, but I got up there directly from the grapple. :o This reminds me of the artifact in the Coliseum. I didn't realize there was a platform at all, so I tried about a dozen times to swing and jump in a fashion that would get me directly to the artifact only to later read that there's a pair of ledges you should be aiming for :lol:
