(Shortcut: Climb onto the block in the far left corner and jump over to the platform on the right. From there you can get onto the bridge.) Enter the entrance on the left. There you will find a ramp.
Instead of running up, run down towards the crawlspace hidden behind it. Crawl through to reach a cave. On the right you can find some flares. Crawl into the passage on the left.

If you run around the back of the cave the gate opens. Step through.
The BridgeTake a running jump over to the left onto the bridge. Kill the guard. He loses some shotgun shells. There are some more on the left. If you look over to the left you can see a little tower with a flag. If you look closely you can see Nessi in the fog. You can see her better when you bend over, looking downwards.
Where you found the shells turn left and face towards Nessi. On the left you can see a brown part of the shore. Before it is a corner of the river. There is no current in this part.

From there you can climb up to the left and take your way around by the wall. At the end you can get down to the water on the right and towards the rocket. Pick it up and again take the familiar way up onto the bridge.
Now get back towards the gap and hang from the ledge. You will find that you can climb the vines. Climb over to the right and then up. A crow will attack you. Climb up to the top and leave the vines with a backflip onto the roof. Now shoot the crow. When you explore the area behind you, you will encounter a second crow and another guard.
