Iron Canyon was located in the southern region of the Bara Magna desert. It ran north-south, with the low-rising volcano which fed the Vulcanus Lava Flow in the north, and the eastern edge of the Sea of Liquid Sand in the south. It lay to the east of the village of Vulcanus, separated by a great limb from the prototype robot whose parts were scattered throughout Bara Magna. Stretching far to the northeast was Creep Canyon.[1, 2]
Iron Canyon was to the east of Vulcanus. A maze of rock that was ideal for ambushes and traps, it was the site of a devastating Core War battle. A lava flow traveled from the outskirts of the canyon into Vulcanus.
