"Then they clambered up a passageway in the rock after Hagrid's lamp, coming out at last onto smooth, damp grass right in the shadow of the castle."
—Description.[src]

This passageway was a three storey dungeon[1] that connected the Boathouse at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to the lawn in front of the Entrance Hall.[2] The main route through the dungeon was relatively safe, though the side paths, despite housing statues concealing such treasures as Chocolate Frog Cards, were infested with hostile Creatures such as bats and large rats.[1]

History

Rubeus Hagrid traditionally led first years at Hogwarts through this passage after the standard trip across the Black Lake on the Hogwarts boats.[2] In 1991, Harry Potter got temporarily lost while travelling through this dungeon, though he managed to meet back up with Hagrid eventually.[1]
