OOC: Since you've indicated actions that would explore more of the ambulatory, I have decided to reveal much more in an open post here. Check out the image (click on the map for a larger version), and read the text below to see what you find. Fee free to perform searches, cast Detect Magic, and so forth.
A full length mirror is set into the crackling brimstone walls here. The copper frame is etched with a proverb in the Abyssal script: “No beauty without envy, no love without jealousy.”
Nobody has yet looked into this mirror.
The statue is of a six-armed, serpent-tailed demoness (pictured) that smells of lilacs.
Font of Blighted Warding
You come close to the fountain and see that it is hewn from translucent precious stone, mixed with obsidian, in which quivering organs are embedded.
You may drink of this fountain to gain temporary hit points equal to your healing surge value, but each time you do so, you incur 1 point of blight. Like all temporary hit points, these do not stack with one another. The THP last until beaten out of you.

A rusted iron portcullis blocks access through a wooden archway clutched by black vines. Chunks of petrified demon princes lie strewn before the gate. Beyond, a courtyard of dead trees is visible beneath the fiery underworld sky. A casual inspection of this rusty gate makes you think that this could be easily lifted.
The upper body of an angel has been crucified to the wall here. Gore cakes the wall, and its spine hangs down like a long chain. Thick frost covers the entire grisly display.
The image of a succubus has been painted onto the wall here. However, the wall is open, two halves rotated away at the center of the succubus painting revealing a short passageway and stairs leading up and out of sight.
Fountain of Blighted Haste
The teeth of pit fiends float in the grey water of this fountain. A marble idol carved in the likeness of a hooded figure wielding a trident stands in the center of the water.
Dungeoneers may drink of this fountain to gain an action point, but each time incurs 2 points of Blight.
A huge square of rusted iron is bolted to the wall here. An ochre portal that reeks of acid swirls within the square.
An obsidian hourglass-shaped keyhole is set into the otherwise featureless wall.
