Gorne's Way is a mythical route through the caves beyond the Wall that pass beneath the Wall and come out south of it into the Seven Kingdoms.


According to story, Gorne, a King-Beyond-the-Wall, discovered the way three thousand years ago and led a wildling army along the path to successfully evade the Night's Watch. However, they were attacked and killed by forces from Winterfell when they reached the far side. His brother, Gendel, attempted to return north of the Wall via the same path, but he did not know it as well as Gorne and became lost in the caves. The descendents of Gendel's folk are said to still be sobbing beneath the hills in their attempts to find a way out.[1]
