Bonechill Passage is a cave located in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Bonechill Passage is a cave full of the remains of animals and people that have wandered too far. It has minor loot and a Skill Book for those who wish to look around. Just outside the arches that mark the entrance is a silver ore vein. Bonechill Passage leads to Ancient's Ascent which has the Word Wall for the Animal Allegiance shout. Note that this is the only designed way of reaching Ancient's Ascent, see Ancient's Ascent for an alternative route. When given the quest by Esbern to kill the dragon at Ancient's Ascent the marker will point to the cave. Just outside the cave entrance there is also a shack with two burnt corpses outside. Inside is a note to the authorities describing the Dragon sightings and the pickpocket skill book Purloined Shadows under the bed. The cave is also a possible location for Aela the Huntress' Animal Extermination quest.
- Shortly after entering the cave, the game may crash to desktop. The time this occurs varies. There are two known fixes: Play in windowed mode or Run services.msc and stop/restart Windows Font Caching Service. Turning crosshair off may also prevent crash.
