Difficulty: Aimed for high level parties, very hard area if you don't know what you're doing; newcomers without knowledge will die. Virtually nothing to kill for any newbies, not solo nor in party. Powerful highbies who are familiar with the area might have something to solo though.
Coder: Mardus
Size (in rooms): At least several dozens. Only two are accessible if you don't know how to proceed.
