Skybound Watch Pass

Skybound Watch Pass is a small Nordic tower and ruin occupied by bandits. Although the interior is named Skybound Watch Pass, the map markers are named North Skybound Watch and South Skybound Watch, and therefore finding both entrances to the pass counts as two separate locations for the "Locations Discovered" statistic. South Skybound Watch is displayed on the map as a Nordic Tower (SR-mapicon-Nordic Tower.png) whereas the northern entrance is displayed as a Ruin (SR-mapicon-Nordic Dwelling.png (map)). The entrances are within Falkreath Hold near to the border with Whiterun Hold. The northern entrance is to the southeast of Riverwood while the southern entrance is directly south. However, it is only a quest destination for Falkreath Hold quests.

[edit] Exterior: North Skybound Watch

North Skybound Watch

Three bandits reside in the remains of the guardhouse. As you enter through the arch to their sleeping area there is a half buried burial urn on your left, with a leveled war axe lying nearby and a hanging rabbit to the left of the opposite door. To the right of the door is a table and two chairs with a rabbit haunch and a medium coin purse. Next to the table is a cage and beside this is a leveled warhammer, and a bench with a copy of Yellow Book of Riddles. An empty pot hangs above the fireplace in the middle. Make your way through the door and turn left for a novice-locked chest. Follow the stairs down to find the door leading to the interior section of the pass.

On the side of the building facing Riverwood, there is a pedestal used for the Destruction Ritual Spell quest.

[edit] Exterior: South Skybound Watch

South Skybound Watch

The tower has a novice-locked chest with random loot at the top and a leveled helmet loose in the mid-level. The door on the bottom leads to the interior section of the pass.

[edit] Skybound Watch Pass

The tunnel helps link the lower lying region of Whiterun to the mountainous portion of Falkreath and is divided into three small sections. On either end of the tunnel are three bandits that are cut off by a giant frostbite spider lair. The southern portion is slightly flooded and contains a large amount of hanging moss and several samples of jazbay grapes. There is an apprentice-trapped chest against the wall as well as some loose gear.

Entering from the northern entrance you will immediately see a couple of bed rolls and then eight hanging moss plants. If sneaking you will see the first of the bandits sitting at the top of a flight of stairs, with another just to the right out of sight. Partway down the stairs avoid the battering ram trap. At the bottom of the stairs is a fire with a bookcase containing various fur armor, a pair of leveled light boots, two small coin purses, and a copy of the Block skill book Battle of Red Mountain. On a sideboard there is a novice-locked chest and a leveled healing potion, with a piece of fur armor on the floor next to it. Through the door and you will see webbing and spider egg sacs, one of which is harvestable. Follow the stairs down past another harvestable egg sec and several dessicated corpses and web secs. At the bottom you will encounter a giant frostbite spider.

[edit] Notes

  • Halfway down the slope from the north end is a pressure plate for a battering ram trap.
  • 23 samples of Hanging Moss, 8 samples of Jazbay Grapes.
  • 1 Moonstone Ore vein is located 240 ft east-southeast of the North Skybound Watch entrance, roughly halfway to Orphan Rock, on the east side of the valley.
