WhiteStumbler June 3, 2015 Share June 3, 2015 I still think the more logical storyline would have been for them to bust through one of the umpteen gates in the Wall that are not currently manned. Just sayin'. This has been bugging me for a while now, so I went and found the ANSWER to this apparent plot hole. From S3E08 Second Sons: (In the abandoned windmill, with a thunderstorm moving in) Bran: How are we going to get past The Wall? My uncle said it's 700 feet high. How did you get past it? Osha: Got in a boat and rowed past the Bay of Seals. Bran: It would take us two months to get to the Bay of Seals. Osha: Some climb straight up the ice. Bran: Even Hodor's not strong enough to climb The Wall with me on his back. Hodor: Hodor! Jojen: 19 castles guard The Wall. Only three are still manned. Hodor: Hodor!! Jojen: One of those abandoned fortresses will give us a way through. Bran: My uncle said the gates were sealed with ice and stone when the castles were deserted. Meera: Well, we'll have to open them up again. Later they meet up with Sam, who comes up thru the hidden sallyport in the Nightfort that he read about in an ancient text. 7 Link to comment
