You may try to attack these crystal blockades with your Leviathan Axe or Blades or Chaos, but nothing will work. That’s because you need to explode them with the help of Explosive Pots. Find a pot with fire on top of it near the barricade and attack it with your weapon (throw your axe at it). Be sure to stay away from the area because you will unnecessarily take damage. Once the pot explodes, the blockade will clear up and you can go on ahead.
