The article investigates the design of the intersection of the Descending and Ascending Corridors in the pyramid of Cheops. Until now there is no convincing indication of the storage location for the granite plugs, and an explanation of how they were delivered and installed. Also, the question remains, how the builders managed to install them so tightly. Many scientists agree that the granite plugs were stored in the Grand Gallery before being used for jamming the intersection, and then were lowered down the Ascending Corridor to the installation site. The article summarizes the earlier versions of the research. In his version, the author proves that the plugs were never placed in the Grand Gallery. The place of their storage could be the special chamber above the intersection. Only in this case, such a tight blockage of the Ascending Corridor is possible. As a proof of his version, the author provides a diagram of the plug installation and an algorithm for their installation.
