This room features an Elevator that goes upward in a diagonal fashion. A gate blocks Samus' path, but there is a way around this: a tunnel in the wall can be used to get around the gate, but it is blocked by a hatch. Samus can destroy it with her Charge Beam. The tunnel will take her into a chamber where she can find the power switch to the gate. Shooting it will lift the gate and allow Samus to continue. Under the floor, liquid Phazon is visible, and a Phazon Grub may be seen.
