After Yeden was put in charge of the skaa rebellion's small army, he commanded them to attack Holstep, hoping that his men would gain some experience in a relatively easy fight. The skaa force numbered seven thousand, while Holstep's garrison only had about a thousand soldiers. About two thousand of the skaa (including Demoux) did not participate in the attack, believing that Yeden was acting rashly and would expose the army's position. Still, Yeden and five thousand rebels defeat the Holstep Garrison, although the fight proved more difficult than Yeden anticipated. However, the Holstep Garrison managed to send a messenger to nearby Valtroux City. Valtroux's Garrison numbered five thousand, and immediately marched to Holstep.
News of the Holstep battle reached Luthadel, and Kelsier and his crew learned of Yeden's foolhardy actions. Kelsier set out with Vin to help the skaa, but by the time they arrived, the Valtroux Garrison had slaughtered the rebels. The Valtroux force was on order to take no prisoners, and put the heads of Yeden and several other officers on spears next to a road. The only survivors were Demoux's group, who had concealed themselves.
The skaa force was better prepared than other rebellions in the past and managed to put up a decent fight, but they were not yet ready to face a fully trained garrison of equal size, particularly since the battle with the Holstep Garrison had just concluded. The brutality of the Valtroux Garrison was presumably meant to quash the skaa rebellion, as the Lord Ruler was aware of the situation and had massacred rebellious skaa in previous incidents such as Tougier. Kelsier blamed himself for the defeat, and believed that his own enthusiasm and the promise of help from Allomancers were the source of Yeden's overconfidence.
