Once out, you'll come across a valley with several bridges that's full with skeletons. As you may have noticed from the previous mobs, the skeletons respawn unless you kill them with holy weapons or kill the commanding necromancers first.

Take a right here.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 380
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 380

This is a part in the game where even the most veteran of speedrunners very often fail. Push your luck or simply aggro them and quickly run back before running past to the necromancer behind.

Originally trapped, he'll open a hole in the wall for you.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 387
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 387

Take this opportunity of buying items and repairing & upgrading some of your gear. I recommend buying some Homeward bones while you're at it.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 388
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 388

Through the hole in the wall, you'll come across one of the most notoriously hard areas in the game. These are Pinwheel Skeletons. They do absolutely insane damage, are seemingly impossible to run away from and there are dozens of them.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 389
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 389

They will spin onto their wheels and come flying after you 24/7. The only way to get past them is to pray and zick-zack yourself through the valley up ahead.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 390

Proceed through the fog-gate and go up ahead.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 391
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 391

Down here will be a mini-boss, hardly worthy of note as he'll be a common mob later in the game.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 392
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 392

He will spawn fake versions of them which are of lighter textures than him and all they do is shoot the occassional magic at you. Hit the original a couple of times to make the boss seemingly harmless. Once dead, head up to the right here.

Climb up the subtle ladder.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 394
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 394

You will come across a seemingly pitch-black area of the game. This section is also notorious for being hard as It is filled with dangers. Equip a skull lantern (If you have one, drops from the Necromancers) and proceed through the dark or follow the glowing orbs carefully.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 395
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 395

The threat here will mostly be Giant skeletons. They do devastating damage but are rather easy when avoided.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 398

You'll come across an NPC that does a small event if you go to the purple shining orb. He'll kick you down to a bunch of corpses that have a Skull Lantern on them. I recommend ignoring If you have one already and going to the right, following the giant blue orbs.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 399
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 399

Jump down here and keep running as It's usually a death-sentence at this point.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 400
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 400

Keep following the Orbs and don't stop for anything.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 401

Stand at the point around where you fell down to avoid aggroing several mean-spirited giant skeletons.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 410
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 410

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 411
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 411

Eventually Gravelord Nito will come crawling up to you.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 412
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 412

He can pretty much only do thrust attacks originating from his right. Simply go up to his left and smack away at him.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 413
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 413

If you are too much close to him, he'll repeatedly do a big AoE. Equip a sturdy shield and block while this happens or move far, far away/roll it.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 414
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 414

A good thing to note is during this AoE, he will kill his own skeletons. Take use of this properly and he will be a breeze to kill.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 415

Once he is dead, all the skeletons will fall with him. Run towards his giant crypt.
