The Frostback Mountain Pass is a part of Gherlen's Pass in the Frostback Mountains that leads to the gates of the dwarven city of Orzammar. Gherlen's Pass is the only safe route to cross the Frostback Mountains for year-round travel[1], unlike the more treacherous Sulcher's Pass.

Involvement[edit | edit source]

On the Warden's first visit to the area, a group of bounty hunters will attack as soon as the party steps close to the bridge. Orzammar is locked down; if entry is sought, there will be a confrontation with Loghain's messengers. It can be resolved by fighting or intimidating the messengers.
