The party descended into a tiny area tiled with more depressible plates with words. The party urged Kirito to disable a bunch of the blank plates on the border, but in the end they opted for setting off the trap anyway. Some plates gave way to pits, but no one fell in them. Big spikes came from the ceiling but people blasted the spikes until they were no longer a threat. Flying Kruthiks came again but they proved to be a nuisance at best, and Kirito finished disabling other things (he did get some help). They got the staircase-turned-slide on the other side to snap into a staircase again, and they headed towards the door.
