The hills were once populated by blooming olive trees, but now the branches are barren and whatever fruits still remain are frozen. This is the beginning of any hopeful nun's pilgrimage to the Convent of Our Lady of the Charred Visage, and where they gathered olives to use the holy oil for sacred ceremonies. The frozen bodies of heretics and criminals left in cages hanging from the trees sway in the cold winds.
This area can be accessed via Wasteland of the Buried Churches and precedes Graveyard of the Peaks. Upon arriving in this area, just before the Prie Dieu altar, the NPC Gemino is found inside an iron statue attached to a large tree. Speaking to him will trigger his quest line. There is a secret cave in this area that can be accessed either by completing Gemino's quest or with a relic acquired much later.
The Lady of the Six Sorrows can be found shortly before the Graveyard of the Peaks.
There is no boss in this area.
