At the other side, you will have to sneak again. At first, dash through the stairs and turn left to enter the nearest building.
You need to get from behind the enemy on your left. Your companion will deal with the other one.
Then, dash to the far end of the room to deal with the enemy behind the window.
To eliminate the remaining enemies, take cover behind the cargo crate and wait for the two soldiers to turn away from you.
You will be able, then, to strangle both of them without raising any suspicion.
The last enemy is on the stairs ahead. Once he starts climbing the stairs, surprise him by hitting him several times.
You can now go downstairs and follow the leader. The woman will take you to a room where you will meet Ellie for the first time.
After a short cutscene, keep running ahead until you reach a high fence.
Then, you need to turn right and climb down the narrow staircase.
The path at the wall will take you to another dead end.
To reach the fire escape, you need to find a nearby container and keep pushing it until you will be able to reach the steps. Climb by pressing X.
By going straight, you will finally reach the rendezvous point. This will conclude this chapter.
