The pass is often plagued with bands of goblins and other raiders emanating from the Filgiso Forest and traders tend to be accompanied with bands of caravan guards. The was a run down fort here named Fort Gryphon which has since (807) been restored somewhat.
Points of Interest
At the southern edge of the hills where the road enters a gorge, Fort Gryphon is set into the hills with a good view north through the gorge as well as south into the fertile lowlands of Gryphon Valley. The architecture is Dwarven but it was in a state of disrepair prior to 807.
Since 807 Fort Gryphon has been repaired and now a portion of it is given over to an inn providing cheap food, lodgings and protection to caravans travelling through the pass.
Bodric Henrikson and Henric Henrikson have started to rebuild the fort in the pass with the blessing of the Lord of Novadom. They have taken a load of supplies and started making the fort more solid and will be expanding the facilities once they have enough supplies and clement weather.
