    Here's my video solution to this achievement, recorded by me. There's a subtitle track to explain my actions, as well. It's easiest to leave the Decipher Fragment for another run, since it'll add two or three extra jumps.

    You don't see the achievement pop because I already had it and because my notifications are off.

    RosshkThe trick to getting this without dying is, when you're falling and just before you drop the block, pull back on the LS a bit. That way you don't go through the edge of it, and land on it instead. I got it on the 1st try after I figured that out.

    A few bits of advice that may help:

    Did you die before you got to the statue that looks like Death? Don't restart the level, as the achievement only tracks deaths while at the river.

    While juming, keep looking down. Doing so will help you get closer to the top of the stream pillars. It will also spawn the platforms beneath you.

    Don't try to go past any pillar. You simply will not make it, take them one at a time.

    Lastly: if you are jumping and feel like you screwed up the jump somehow, spawn a pad beneath you to save yourself and try again.

    After going through this a few times I noticed in the very beginning that there was a ledge if you just go straight. Well if you look down there is a hole in the ground with a red glowing and symbol. If you angle yourself right bring out that ramp shape figure and continue walking off the ledge.

    If you are successful, you should make it through the hole and there is a particle field where you can use those shapes. Time it right and you can skip over half the work.

    I said use the triangle one because that shape only requires you to touch the field. The other one with multiple squares requires each individual square to touch the field to work.

    I also did a little research and unfortunately I am not the first to discover this. But the other said to jump down, in which I am suggesting to walk off the ledge I failed the first 3 times when I discovered it just walking off the edge. Plus the triangle more than makes up the distance you could have made if you jumped "right".

    Then just do what the other guy said. I'm just providing a shortcut, to help get it done faster. Wish I could have found a shortcut for "Impress Warren Vidic" achievement (It could use one).

    *I get to celebrate my discovery knowing I did not discover it first. :(

    Mysteryman200Wish I could make a video, if I had this for PC I would. Been a while since I have played, but I believe the glowing red symbol was a camera positioning thing.

    GuruThaGreatThis shortcut saved me so much time and frustration. Thanks for posting it.

    Also, for DeltaAgent (or anyone else having issues finding it) at the very start of the level walk forward until you get to the ledge of the building you're standing on. Looking down off the ledge you should see a square hole. That isn't the hole you want. Instead look a little bit to the right of it and you should see a second hole with red easily visible in it. Hopefully that clears up any confusion.
