The Ice Block Cavern is a hidden cavern that can be entered in Twilight Princess. It is found in North Hyrule Field, in the northern portion of the area. In order to enter it, Link needs to first obtain Bombs as the entrance is blocked with a large boulder. Once inside, Link finds a large chunk of ice, stopping his progress through the cavern. In order to break the barrier, Link must utilize the Ball and Chain, which can be found in the Snowpeak Ruins. Inside, there are three sets of puzzles, with large Ice Blocks that have to be moved in a certain way to open the door to the next puzzle.
