Knifepoint Ridge is a bandit camp, located northwest of Falkreath in Falkreath Hold. It is also the main camp for the Knifepoint Gang[1]. There is a master-locked chest under the ramp behind the smelter, leading to Boethiah's previous champion. This location can only be marked as "Cleared" if the quest Boethiah's Calling has not been started.

  •  PC   360   PS3   If the Dragonborn goes to Knifepoint Ridge to complete the radiant bounty quest after recently completing Boethiah's Calling, the marker may be over the empty space where the first bandit used to be inside the mine, making the quest impossible to complete until the bandits respawn.
    • Sometimes the bandits may respawn, but the bandit leader will not.
  •  360   During the Knifepoint Mine portion of the Boethiah's Calling, there may be a giant boulder blocking the path to the lower level. You can solve this issue by loading a previously saved game (before initializing Boethiah's Calling), and clearing out Knife Point Ridge and its mine. Reload the game before starting Boethiah's Calling, and the boulders will be gone.
