The Tornir Peaks divide the High Kingdom of Tysan from north to south. There are two roads which cross through the peaks (one of which is the Great West Road), and another road around them to the south (through Caithwood). The road through the mountains from Karfael to Erdane is described as winding, through a series of promontories and gullies.
