Rock Path (Japanese: 横穴 Rock Tunnel) is the ninth dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX that contains 4 floors. It is an optional dungeon preceding Mt. Blaze and Lapis Cave that is only available before Moltres is defeated for the first time.


Rock Path exists solely so the player may level themselves up, since at the point in the game where Mt. Blaze is first introduced, the player is a fugitive that cannot return to Pokémon Square. If the player fails to complete Lapis Cave, the player can enter Rock Path as an option when heading over to the cave entrance of Lapis Cave. After completing the dungeon, the player and the partner will find themselves back at the mountain entrance, with the partner saying that they took the wrong path.

There is no chance of finding a Monster House or a buried item in this dungeon. Pokémon may not be recruited in this dungeon. While shops cannot be found in Rock Cave in the original games, shops can be found here in the remake.
