I must be missing something very simple here but I'm completely stumped. During the second visit to Joker's HQ, after seeing Harley tied up, there is a side quest to acquire a Mister Freeze gadget from a room at the bottom of an elevator shaft where some thugs are shooting at Penguin figurines. I found my way down via the broken elevators, beat up the thugs and found the gizmo, but the only way out appears to be the way I came in (through the shaft with the broken elevators) and I cannot figure out how to get back. I have tried every possible approach using the Remote Electrical Charger to move the elevator up and down as far as it will go but i am hopelessly trapped. Can anyone help? Many thanks!

Use the grappling hook while the elevator is in motion.

Thanks but from where? And grapple to where? Sorry but, as I said, I must be missing something very obvious as I've been trying to get out of here forever.

From inside the elevator I cannot get it to move. I can only zap the elctric motor from the shaft entrance or the floor.

From inside? Lol, you don't have to enter the elevator.

You have to zap the elevator to go up twice before it gives you the option to grapple to the ledge above. I had that same problem.

Ah!! I must have done that out of sheer impatience, after being stuck for an hour. Good to know for when I play through it again. It's not one of the game's best navigational puzzles. Thanks for your help.
