You'll find a cliff at the end of the path, but there's a tree that has fallen down that links the edges together. Use the tree as a makeshift bridge to cross the gap.

Now keep walking forward and jump towards the other side. Quick tip: Whenever you see anything white, like white ledges or white paint on a wall, they're always interactable in some way. For example white ledges means that Lara can grab it.

"Head back to camp and you'll see a ripe mesh. Light up your torch on the sconce and use it to burn the mesh. A crate will appear when it burns. There are actually a lot of crates in the area but these are generally the easiest to find.
