The dragon at Shearpoint

Shearpoint is a dragon lair located on a small peak to the north of the Throat of the World, between Fellglow Keep and Irkngthand.

Its word wall contains all three words of the Throw Voice shout, and is guarded by both a leveled dragon and Krosis, an undead dragon priest.

The summit is visible behind Fellglow Keep, and a rough path to the word wall can be followed by heading northwest past the keep and circling round to the northeast. Alternatively, you may head south from Tumble Arch Pass before heading east once the slope becomes easier to climb.

Before the dragons' return, the wall is guarded only by Krosis. No additional enemies appear.
