Julia and Boris arrive, and Julia attaches the end of the rope ladder to Boris' saddle. She walks him a short distance till the man is safe. The three of them sit outside the mens' tent and eat. She tells them about her cave, and believes the two caves to be connected. She has felt a breeze in her cave, so she knows there must be another entrance.
