View towards the Camp Site Fire with the "narrow passage" further south

Northtarn is a landmark within the Southern High Pass in The Misty Mountains. [26.7S, 7.2E]

This frozen lake is located in the dale of southern High Pass, and it stretches in north-south direction. The clean-swept surface makes the lake a good travel route. At its south-most end is a very narrow passage, where, to the west a trail runs up past Ceber Los towards Men Helch and Giant Halls beyond, and, to the east and high up is a Camp Site Fire. South of that narrow passage lies a wider lake, north-west of Erforgh Cleft, the large gauredain camp.

At Northtarn only gauredain, wolves and worms seem to stand the icy winds sweeping the ice clear of snow and what not, though one worm is more fiery than the most.
