The Canyons of the Undead – and the pyramids of Katch which stand sentinel over them – are located near the northern shore of the southern continent and the Sea of Torments. They are east of Beryl, the most ancient of the Jewel Cities. The Canyons and their pyramids are mentioned just once, in The Silver Spike. It was not specified if "Katch" referred to a deity, an ancient ruler, a city, or something else.

These canyons and pyramids are together the seventh specified location in the long, overland odyssey traveled by the demon called Toadkiller Dog, who was following the trail of his new enemy, the Limper. After swimming the River Bigotes and the Hyclades, and traversing the Rani Poor desert, the burial mounds of Barbara, the forgotten highways of Laba Larada, and the ruins of Khun, Toadkiller Dog passed the pyramids of Katch. He then continued eastward, crossing, in order: the ruins of the temple city of Marsha the Devastator; the populated province of Karsus; the Plain of Dano-Patha; the Mountains of Sinjian; and finally, the Straits of Angine and onward into the northern continent, to the Tower at Charm.
