He was with Val when Jon Snow was presented to Mance Rayder.[1] He was tasked, along with his co-commander Styr, of scaling the Wall and taking Castle Black from the rear. He lead a group of four climbers up the Wall, but fell to his death when part of the Wall broke and fell away. Jon Snow saw him die.[3]

"The Wall killed Jarl." [4]
