Sky is the third waycastle defending the Eyrie, seat of House Arryn, and the last line of the castle's defense following the Gates of the Moon and the waycastles Stone and Snow.[1]


The path to Sky is treacherous. It is open to the wind and the steps are cracked and broken from the constant freezing. Sky is a high, crescent-shaped wall of unmortared stone raised against the side of the mountain. Inside the walls are a series of ramps and a great tumble of boulders and stones of all sizes, ready to throw down or even cause a minor avalanche. There is a cavern containing a long natural hall, stables, and supplies.[2] Handholds carved into the rock lead to the Eyrie, while earthen ramps give access to the walls.[1] The Eyrie, located six hundred feet above, can be reached by Sky's handholds in the rocky chimney which lead to the castle's undercellar, or by taking oaken supply buckets pulled by chain winches.[2][3]
