On either side of the entrance are barrels and crates, including a fish barrel and a food barrel. On the left, partially buried in the snow between two crates, is an expert-locked East Empire Company strongbox containing an East Empire pendant and other loot. Along the cliff face to the right is a malachite ore vein and six spiky grass plants yielding ashen grass pods, while a nirnroot plant and two pearl oysters are along the shore. Two horkers are found just northeast of the entrance.

Entrance corridor
Karstaag's Skull
The cave

Upon entering, an icy tunnel descends to the southeast, with rocks and fencing made from rieklings spears on either side. By the second set of fencing is a pickaxe on top of a crate. The tunnel bears to the south, then turns back to the southeast by two barrels. The passage soon opens into a cavern, with a riekling tent on the far side, and barrels and crates along the walls at the end of the tunnel and in the cavern.

As you enter the cavern, you are at the top of some shallow ledges above the cavern floor. There are three rieklings waiting to ambush you beneath the snow. Use of the Aura Whisper dragon shout will reveal them to you. As you move forward, they will burst from the snow and attack. On your right is an ice pillar with a riekling hut behind it. Against the northeast wall on the ground is a malachite ore vein. To the right of the vein is the tent seen from the tunnel, with an open crate containing a goblet inside. At the back of the cave, wedged into a crack on the wall, is Karstaag's skull.
