I'm called Follows-Chalk. Joshua sent me to scout for any outsiders coming up from the Southern Passage.Follows-Chalk

The southern passage is a location in Zion Canyon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.


By 2281, the passage serves as one of only two routes into Zion for travelers (with the other being the Pine Creek tunnel).[1] For years until then, it was primarily utilized by the traders of New Canaan, though maps of the route have since been spread around to other unaffiliated caravans. However, its combination of narrow canyons and high-altitude passages requires traveling with limited gear.[2][3]


Situated at the southwesternmost corner of Zion, the cave serves as the transitory location to and from the Mojave Wasteland as with the northern passage. There are three duffle bags located against the rocks slightly to the north of the entrance. These bags do not despawn and can be used to safely store items until the add-on is completed.

  1. Waking Cloud: "This is Pine Creek, one of the only ways out of Zion Valley. Watch out - many dangerous beasts lair nearby."
    (Waking Cloud's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "I understand this caravan is headed to Zion. What can you tell me about the area?"
    Jed Masterson: "Well, I ain't never been inside, myself. Did some trading with the New Canaanites from their mission there, but that was all on the outskirts. All the old ways in and out were destroyed after the War, but we got ourselves the location of a pass the New Canaanites use - that's our way in. That's why I wanted someone with a Pip-Boy on the caravan - the map'll be helpful for checking the topography, keeping us on the trail."
    (Jed Masterson's dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "Why the weight limit?"
    Jed Masterson: "You ain't never been to Zion, have you? We'll be passing through a whole mess of narrow slot canyons and high, rough passes. A big pack'll get you wedged in like a Super Mutant crawling through a storm drain, and too much weight will kill you in the thin air."
