The huge Turtle Rock dungeon was carved deep into the core of Eastern Death Mountain. Its four floors were riddled with puzzling traps and bottomless pits. It is said that only those who possessed the Cane of Somaria could float over the wide pits in many of the dungeon's chambers. The Fire Rod and the Ice Rod were also essential equipment for fighting the Trinexx which lurked in the dungeon's lowest level. This dungeon is said to be where Zelda was held prisoner.
