|Walkthrough & Notes|
The assault against the upper gatehouse has been unsuccessful for Saruman's armies. The small window openings only allow for small hooks and grapnels without space for attaching a ladder. The goblins have devised a plan to construct winches within the window openings for them to raise ladders; ladders which will allow for their brutal Uruk-hai companions to aid them in the slaughter.
The goblins must not be allowed to construct any winches in the gatehouse windows, or the army will be able to raise ladders for a fast entry. The wounded Rohirrim that have retreated to within the walls will be easy targets once the enemy has secured an entry point.
