As you enter, go north (or south, depending on the side you entered from) and you’ll soon find Aarune standing next to a large boulder. He’ll hand you TM96 (Nature Power) before leaving.

This large boulder is a "Strength boulder", and you can move it aside now that you have Lavaridge’s Badge and - hopefully - have learned Strength. Examine it to use it, then push it westward and into the hole. Go north from there and push the Strength boulder westward until it’s blocked by a rock.

If you head off far to the north from here, you’ll see a yellow item ball on the ground containing TM06 (Toxic). Toxic induces Bad Poisoning, a very dangerous status for the target to have. Pokémon that attempt to tank are notorious for its abuse since it’s more or less death in five turns.

Anyway, go back south, then west and along the path for a bit until you find a Fire Stone . That is actually it for here, so feel free to leave.
