Geography

The Frostfangs lie north of the Wall, just northwest of the Shadow Tower, separating the Lands of Always Winter to their west and the haunted forest to their east. Its southern peaks and foothills transition into the northern mountains, which are part of the North within the Seven Kingdoms. One of the largest mountains in the Frostfangs is called Forktop by the Night's Watch.[1]

The easiest way into the Frostfangs is to follow the Milkwater river to its source, but this path is very visible from the Fist of the First Men. Other paths into the Frostfangs include the Giant's Stair and the Skirling Pass, if it is clear. [2]

The Frostfangs are a cruel and inhospitable wilderness of stone and ice, jagged peaks eternally covered in snow.[2] However, the Frostfangs conceal a diverse series of wonders. Icy waterfalls plunge over sheer stone cliffs, mountain meadows are filled with grass and wildflowers, there are ravines so deep and black they seem to go all the way to hell, and bridges of natural stone span distances with only the sky to either side. [1]

It has been suggested that hidden valleys exist in the Frostfangs, valleys that sustain small numbers of people [3] yet not even free folk dare live in the Frostfangs during the winter. [2]
