larger area. There will be a platform overhead. You won't be able to see it
unless you try to surface. There will be a boxed in area of the platform
that you can see, however. Swim up that opening. If you are running low on
air, you can swim up to the platform from the tunnel, but you must step

over the door past the bridge (back near secret #3)

ogres, and the spiked wall begins to come towards you. Kill the ogres and
escape using a lift that becomes unbarred with their death. Jump down onto
the stairs into the middle of the lava. These are the same stairs you just
went down. The bars will go up at some point and you will be able to enter.
This time when you enter, the bars will not go down, and if the spiked wall
has returned to it's original position, it will move as soon as you enter
