Length: 49 meters
Width: 3 meters
Height: 11 meters

After scrambling through the narrow confines of the Ascending Passage, you can finally stand up in the immense Grand Gallery, which continues upward at the same steep rate of incline all the way to the entrance of the King's Chamber. The gallery is not perfectly rectangular—the ceiling narrows to a corbelled (roughly triangular-shaped) roof. From the bottom of the gallery you may also choose to go into the Queen's Chamber, which is currently closed to the public.
