Inside is a series of long tunnel with a couple of grawls. These grawls can be skipped and most likely won’t kill you. What you do have to watch out however, is the red circles on the ground. These red circles can almost instantly down you if you don’t dodge out of them.

Pretty soon, you will see Tattered Journals scattered on the ground. There are three volumes in total and the other two volumes can be obtained at the end.
