Cairn Ascent is a colossal stalactite between Maitimírë and the Athenas Daggers's underside. Ages ago, during the Demon Spawn War (8972 GE - 9493 GE), the Covenant built a road up the stalactite to the surface. Starting at Maitimírë, the Cerulean Road circles the Cairn Ascent, passing dozens of ancient fortifications and sealed doors. These doors are covered in holy sigils, with most placed in the last year before the Angelic Departure (9494 GE - 9500 GE). These heavily warded portals lead to the bastions of Phollûmâ, and their rumored weapons and magic caches useful for combating demons.
