Profane Path is a room in the Sky Temple Grounds. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, accessible once Samus has the Space Jump Boots. Several Bladepods can be found here, as well as a Beam Ammo Expansion, attainable by disabling an Echo Key Beam system.

The Aetherian version of this room is the Sacred Path and a Portal connects the two.
