The Colossal Rampart is a secret location in the Howling Peaks DLC of Minecraft Dungeons. It can be unlocked from the Windswept Peaks.


FORMIDABLE FORTIFICATIONS — A formidable wall twists along the base of these mighty peaks, stretching endlessly in every direction. These impressive defenses, abandoned long ago, have now been claimed by Illagers who seek to control the entire mountain range.

The Colossal Rampart is a huge fortress housing many mobs built near the edge of the mountain where the Gale Sanctum was built. The rampart seems to have been damaged over time and some of the land has been converted to farmland for any mobs residing within its walls and nearby. Deep within the rampart are two indoor gardens, various winding stairs and hallways, as well as various wind puzzle rooms that share a general look to the Gauntlet and the Sanctum itself. On the farmland are war machines, such as a catapult and a battering ram in which the hero has to burn to progress into the mission.
