Head down to the secret passage and break through the wall. Head down and instead of using climbing arrows, jump down to the ground beneath it and collect SURVIVAL CACHE 1/3. Once you pass the climbing arrow section, EXPLORER SATCHEL will be on the top of the rocks near the soft wood. You'll have to use the climbing arrows to reach it. Light the Solemn Crevasse Base Camp below. Jump in the water and take the right path. SURVIVAL CACHE 2/3 will be on a small piece of land. Head to the objective beacon.

Path of the Deathless - Find the entrance to the Orrery

Make your way to the observatory through the path of spears.

Path of the Deathless - Use the Orrery to open the entrance to Kitezh

Time to get up to the top. Start by pulling the roped sphere near you. Cross the pole to the lower center and pull the roped sphere that's with the hanging beam twice. Do the same with the roped sphere and the metal wall. Climb the lower metal wall and take the path you created. At the top, disengage the first half of the mechanism. Spool swing to the middle center and then walk to the other side of the room to disengage the other half of the mechanism. MURAL 1/1 is to the right of the second mechanism, at the end of a narrow hallway.

The observatory starts to move and you'll want to spool swing back to the middle center. Next, climb the metal wall, the one with the hanging beam. Jump to one of the hanging wooden planks and then drop onto the two sphere rod. Climb the double metal wall pole. From here jump to the center to grab onto square rings near the top (they wrap around the center beam). Climb up to the top center and to the objective beacon. CLASSICALLY TRAINED (CODICES 1/1) will be here. At the climbing arrow section, drop down and collect SURVIVAL CACHE 3/3. Continue through the climbing arrow section until you reach the Path of the Deathless.

Through the Glacier - Make your way to the heart of Kitezh

Jump down and take a left to collect an ARCHIVIST MAP. A BROKEN MAN (DOCUMENT 1/4) is on the left on the main path. Follow the path and eventually you'll reach the Hall of Guardians Base Camp. ESCAPE (DOCUMENT 2/4) will be on the right after a cinematic shot of the Deathless Ones crossing a bridge.

Into the Hidden City - Cross the walls into the Inner City

The Icy Bluff Base Camp is up ahead (Why are two base camps with no danger in between this close?)

Zip line down and you'll get into a fight with a Deathless One. You kill him and fall down where more of them are.

Once you've cleared the area, light BRAZIER 1-2/6 on the high ground to the right (with the objective beacon being forward) with the fire vases beside them. Continue and take down two Deathless Archers shooting at you. Up the stairs will be two more. On top of the structure that the second duo were in is BRAZIER 3/6.

The next cutscene will trap you in an area. Use a poison arrow for the ground troops and shoot the chandeliers above the archers heads' to take care of them. Behind you to the left is a roped barricade with BRAZIER 4/6 behind it. Continue under the archway. Collect LIGHTS IN THE DARK (DOCUMENT 3/4) and MYSTERIOUS FIGURINE (RELIC 1/1) to the right and SAFE PASSAGE (DOCUMENT 4/4) to the left. Light BRAZIER 5-6/6 in the left (which has a wooden barricade) and right windows above and behind you.
