To reach the Old Altus Tunnel, head northeast from the Erdtree-Gazing Hill Site of Grace until you reach a deep gorge east of Wyndham Ruins.

This steep gorge will curve to the left, and you will notice an Imp Statue Seal in front of the entrance.

Use the Stonesword Keys to unlock this seal and enter the tunnel.

Towards the right side of the shack, you will see another corpse with Stanching Boluses.

This boss is relatively easy and can be quickly punished from a distance if you use your Summoning Ashes to distract him.

Beware of its roar, which can knock you down, allowing the Stonedigger Troll to follow up with a powerful club smash.

After defeating this boss, you will receive 9600 Runes and the Great Club Hammer Weapon.
