|Area:||Bruinen Source East|
At the southern mountain slopes of this vale lies this large goblin fortification, high high above Whitcleft. Well beaten trails begin south as well as east of the Caldwell Pool, before winding their way up-hills passing through smaller goblin encampments first. All the way up fierce goblins are on guard, protecting their leader Gurzmat. Scouts report that the goblin-leader may even be working with the Dourhand dwarves.
