This platform has two pressure pads, and two time-release crates that will be dropped from the ceiling. Like the previous section, a circular saw will slowly make its way towards you. Hit the left hand switch first, wait 4-5 seconds and then hit the second. Pull the first crate to the left and place it beneath where the second crate will drop. Using the double stacked crates, jump over the circular saw and onto the platform above.

After swinging to the upper platform (left), time your progress as you step on the buttons so that you can double stack the boxes. Jump up to the next platform (right).

When you reach the ladder (left), instead of going up, head into the passage to the right. Follow this through the darkness until you reach the egg (right).
