Metal Gear Solid 3 - At the waterfall

My frustration with battling The Fury made me forget how much I love this game. Heck, I've loved all the Metal Gear Solids. Their stealth action, out there villains, and wacko stories totally do it for me.

Let me also say that the sequence where you have to escape from Groznyj Grad without any of your camouflage was a pain in the ass. Granted, I am going for a zero alert, zero kill game, but man. You are just so exposed out there. The biggest problem was the first area right outside the prison. I could make it to the door to the Northeast, but then there are four guards to get past with no cover. The hole in the northwest wall seems like the right place to exit, but there is a freakin' guard there that never moves. With no way to hide and no way to knock him out, me getting by there was pure luck. I even looked at some FAQs for help, but none of them acknowledged that there was a guard there. Not even the extreme mode FAQs (and I'm only playing on Hard). Eventually I managed to distract him and sneak around, but I totally feel I did that by pure luck.

Anyway, on to the rest of the game.

It's been ages since I've played the game, so I'm sort of fuzzy of the order of stuff, but did you get to the part where you have to climb the super long ladder?

Yes, I am past the long ladder (I think that's right before the fight with The Furty).
