You'll begin this quest in Sovngarde, at the top of a long staircase (#1). You won't have any way to return to Skuldafn Temple, so you'll have to head north, first descending the stairs and then following a misty path. As you make your way along the path, you'll meet a dead Stormcloak soldier who will warn you that Alduin has been devouring the souls trapped in the mists. You might also run into some dead characters from the campaign, including Kodlak Whitemane (killed during the Companions quests), Legate Rikke (killed during the Stormcloak quests), or Ulfric Stormcloak (killed during the Imperial quests).
But eventually you'll come to Tsun (#2), the guardian of the Whalebone Bridge (#3). When you tell him that you'd like to enter the Hall of Valor, he'll challenge you to a "warrior's test" to see if you're worthy. Tsun will then attack you, and you'll have to knock him down to about half health to pass the test. When that happens Tsun will acknowledge your worth, and he'll allow you to cross the bridge.
When you enter the Hall of Valor (via Exit A), you'll be met by Ysgramor, who will tell you that three heroes -- Gormlaith, Hakon, and Felldir the Old -- would like to speak to you. You might remember this trio from your vision of Aldiun's defeat during the quest
. When you approach the three heroes (on the eastern side of the hall), they'll talk amongst themselves for a bit, and then they'll charge out to defeat Alduin.
