This meeting will be participated by Gray Warden Hawke - the protagonist of the previous installment. He tasks you with this quest. The first thing that you need to do is visit the war room.

After you get to Crestwood, you need to start a long walk to the South-East. Along your path, you will be attacked by the undead and highwaymen (always attack archers and elite enemies in the first place). Along your path you encounter the Gray Wardens, whom you can help eliminate monsters. Apart from that, you will most probably go past the Crestwood village and Caer Bronach, but you do not need to stop here. Your destination is the cave near the Eastern edge of the map (M13,1a), near one of the campsites that you can set.

After you enter the cave, you will first meet Hawke, and walk over to the area, where there is another Gray Warden waiting - Stroud (M13,1b). You do not need to watch out, during the meeting, because the dialogue options that you pick do not play any vital role. If you want to, you can ask Stroud an additional question (it is a good idea to talk to him again, after the first conversation ends).

Quickly eliminate the mage guards.

While fighting, focus on eliminating the Warden Spellbinder first (note - they are immune to the ice attacks) and send some warriors on them in order to make it harder for them to cast spells. Watch out for the rage demon, it is the best to attack him with your whole party. The smaller monster can be left for the end, as they do not present much of a problem. After dealing with all of the enemies, talk to the Hawk and Stroud. In order to continue this quest, you will have to return to the Skyhold and walk over to the council room. Here, you unlock the passage to the Adamant Fort (cost: 20 Power points), where the main part of the quest starts.

After you pass through the outer walls, you reach Clareel and the rest of the wardens.

However, if you pick "I have already spared wardens" in the special menu, or if there is Blackwall on the party, there is a chance that some of the wardens will side with you (if you have talked to your party members often, you may have access to additional dialogue options). After the battle, climb up the stairs, where you see a cutscene, at the top.
