Glacial Cavern - Ice Ship

You can't miss this one - there's a giant flippin' Mongolian warship embedded in the ice that Lara points out. Continue up the path, then leap to the ledge inside the next cavern to see the ship in all its glory. Take a running leap off the plank and hoist yourself onto the vertical mast.

Use the crank here to lower a frozen ornament, and be sure to grab the Document to the right. Climb the higher mast and walk out over the chasm, then leap to dangling ornament to crash through the ice on the nearby wall. Now you can climb the oars to the higher ledge.
