|Region:||The Misty Mountains|
|Area:||Southern High Pass|
A mountain pass runs between north-eastern Giant Halls and the south-west of Southern High Pass, just above Ceber Los. Men Helch means "bitter cold road" in Sindarin, and indeed it is. The origin of the ruins made of stone slabs is unknown but considering their size and other "structures" in the area it is possible that giants throw them together as shelter from the icy blizzards. This narrow path is now well patrolled by frost-giants of the tribe dwelling in the nearby Iorbar, and travelers should not expect to pass them unnoticed.
