Back to Legend of Grimrock 2

To the north of the Cyrstal Mines you’ll find the Hamlet of Stormbreach and once inside you can unlock another exit to Twigroot Forest to the east. The mines descend two levels below this one. Going down through the Core and then the Abyss. Some areas of the Core can only be reached by falling down the pits around Point #2 and #3.

You’ll need to make your way past a few puzzles before finding the Mine Key and descending further. You’ll come back up in the southwest to pick up the Power Gem and open up the shortcut.
