In Skyrim I wasn't actually looking for the golden claw but ended up in the room with the pillars and got stuck behind one of the pillars. How do I get back out?

    This is pretty vague. If you're on PC can you post a screenshot?

  • Its on xbox, I thought the pillars led to a secret room and now am stuck behind the pillars. I got in, just can't figure how to get out

    Load an autosave, if there are any on the xbox... Dec 28, 2011 at 18:58

    Your best bet is probably to load a previous save.

I already got stuck in several places around skyrim. You can either try :

  • Whirlwind Sprint Shout, this can maybe unstuck you,
  • Load a previously saved game (or autosaved, or quicksaved).

Good Luck

    Presumable he hasn't yet received the whirlwind sprint as he's doing Bleak Falls Barrow :)

You can also try going into third person view. This has allowed me to get out of some stuck situations where I could not while in first person view.


A way I do it is try to move backwards and start jumping backwards or go to the last save which respawns you at a door or start!
