"Stone falls, narrow twists and turns, paths so steep even a Rock Steed wouldn't try them ... they would have to be insane to take that route."
Raanu, Raid on Vulcanus

Skabelon:Location The Iron Canyon is a barren area which makes up the south-eastern part of the Wastelands.


During the Core War, a battle was fought in Iron Canyon in which several members of the Glatorian species fought, including Ackar. Due to dangerous terrain and narrow passageways, armies were forced to hide often, and march single file. During these single file marches, many successful ambushes were sprung on enemy armies.

After the Shattering, the Iron Canyon region was separated along with other geological locations from Spherus Magna onto Bara Magna. Following that event, the Fire Tribe had established themselves in the village of Vulcanus, located to the west of the canyon.

A few weeks after the Battle of Atero, a group of Bone Hunters led by Fero had rode through Iron Canyon to raid Vulcanus. However, when the Fire Tribe Agori and a group of Glatorian launched traps in the canyon, the Bone Hunters retreated. Once the Vulcanus forces were convinced the Bone Hunters had given up, Fero's forces rode away from Iron Canyon and instead attacked from the south.

After Spherus Magna was reformed, the Iron Canyon became once more part of the planet. Later, the tyrant Karzahni traveled to Iron Canyon, where he was murdered by Velika. He was found by Kopaka and Pohatu, who also found Lesovikk's Air Sword nearby. They were beset by a cyclone, but Kopaka blocked the winds with an ice wall, and they left with the body in tow.


The Iron Canyon region is a deserted area, being part of the Wastelands. It has extremely rough terrain and is extremely narrow. Creep Canyon is located to the north-east of the area, while the Sea of Liquid Sand is situated to the west.
