I have found a door in Shroud Heath Barrow which looks almost exactly the same as the one in Black Falls Sanctum.

That door was opened with Lucan's golden claw…

… but the symbols on this door aren't quite the same (wolf instead of bear), so I don't imagine I'm supposed to use the same one.

Where can I get the claw for this door?

the "claw door" in Shroud Hearth Barrow

I found an Emerald Dragonclaw somewhere along the line - I think it's safe to say there are a handful of these things. – Raven Dreamer Nov 13 '11 at 18:16

Go back to the inn with the guy's diary and talk to the innkeeper. He'll give you a sapphire claw as payment. You then use it identically to the one you use in Bleak Falls. If you haven't started the quest, pretty sure you can just talk to the innkeeper anyway and start it, then immediately fork over the diary to get the claw.

I didn't see the journal until after starting the quest, but I can't be sure whether that's because I wasn't there or if I just missed it. :-) – Ben Blank Nov 13 '11 at 19:17
It's in the room with the ghost knight. – The Communist Duck Nov 13 '11 at 19:25
The trick is to take the journal rather than just read it. Taking it will advance the quest text. – thelsdj Nov 17 '11 at 12:54
@David Fullerton Thanks for the spoiler tag, I wasn't sure how to add it. – The Communist Duck Nov 17 '11 at 17:08

Kill the elves spirit impostor, go back to the pub and the bartender will give you the sapphire claw.
