Castles in the Dornish Red Mountains include Blackmont, High Hermitage, Kingsgrave, Skyreach, Starfall, Wyl, and Yronwood. The Dornish mountains also contain the ruins of the Tower of Joy and Vulture's Roost. There are two principal passes through the mountains, the Prince's Pass, guarded by House Fowler, and the Boneway, guarded by House Yronwood. The river Wyl flows from the eastern mountains to the Sea of Dorne, while the Torentine flows from the western mountains to the Summer Sea. The Dornish who live in the Red Mountains are known as stony Dornishmen.
North and northeast of Dorne, the Red Mountains extend along the southern stormlands to Cape Wrath, Griffin's Roost on Shipbreaker Bay, and almost to Storm's End. This includes the southern Dornish Marches and the castles of the marcher lords, such as Blackhaven and Stonehelm. The vicinity of Stonehelm is known as the Red Watch.
Vulture Kings have occasionally rebelled within the mountains.
A Clash of Kings
Tyrion Lannister requests Prince Doran Martell send his armies to the Boneway and the Prince's Pass to keep the marcher lords in their castles as part of the political betrothal of Myrcella Baratheon and Trystane Martell. Doran promises to move his banners into the high passes once Myrcella arrives safely at Sunspear.
