Full Dirtmouth Walkthrough
Upon crossing King's Pass, The Knight stumbles upon a fading town called Dirtmouth where a few citizens who survived The Infection have taken shelter.
Meeting the Elderbug
Players will now arrive in a small village situated at the top of Hallownest. From here you'll find that most of the buildings are closed and the only NPC you'll find is the Elderbug. Speak to him and he will tell you about what happened to the town and kingdom.
After speaking to him, you'll find a Bench next to him. You can rest at the Bench to do the following: (1) Save your game. (2) Update your Map, only if you have the Quill that can be later on purchased from Iselda and (3) Equip and manage your Charms.
Since you were able to acquire your first charm from the King's Pass, you can now equip your charm by sitting on the bench. A tutorial will automatically pop out once you rest.
After you've equipped the Fury of the Fallen charm, speak to Elderbug again and then continue going right until you walk by a well. Jump inside that will lead you to the next location, the Forgotten Crossroads.

I have a mod for the PC version that keeps Grimm in Dirtmouth permanently, even after completing the fire ritual. I love this mod so much.... Visiting Grimm any time... So, eat that, Elderbug! We Grimmkin and good Master shall stay, whether you approve of our harmless and benevolent presence or not! <^_^) ♥️ - Grimmkin Wisp
