Caradhras the Cruel
|Walkthrough & Notes|
'If the goat was killed recently, there is still a chance that Thorlák made camp, but is unable to return. Caradhras the Cruel can entangle even the hardiest explorers if they are not prepared.
'Return to the Redhorn Gate and search its northern reaches, Thorlák's supplies would almost certainly be spent by now if he was forced to seek shelter on the hard face of Zirakzigil.
'I can only hope that Thorlák is having a merry time, sitting among the ancient treasures next to a warm fire in Durin's Tower....'
You discovered the corpse of a slain Redhorn-goat, which Hjór took as a good sign that his friend may yet live, for the corpse was expertly skinned.
Thorlák entered the Redhorn Gate in search of Durin's Tower in the eastern parts of the pass, upon Zirakzigil.
Hjór hopes that Thorlák has found some shelter in the upper reaches of the Redhorn Gate.
Hjór is in Echad Dúnann, south-west of the Redhorn Gate.
You should return to Hjór and inform him of Thorlák's death.
