Sarnúr is a landmark and dungeon within Vale of Thrain in Ered Luin. [20.6S, 103.3W]

This Dourhand stronghold is located in the south-west of Vale of Thrain and through Orodost, the goblin camp. Sarnúr is Sindarin for "Wide Rock" and these days Dourhand dwarves and their evil allies are mustering their forces to begin a final assault upon the Longbeards of Thorin’s Hall and the elves of eastern Ered Luin.

Sarnúr is a Public Dungeon and the main source for reputation with Thorin's Hall; the mobs and bosses range level 45 to 50. Deep down are the icy Sarnúr Caverns located, where the rarest beast delve. At Sarnúr's Keep is found the "Forge of the Blue Mountain" but it cannot be used for crafting. - [1]

After the Longbeards routed them from the stronghold of Thorin's Hall, the Dourhand Dwarves scattered, maintaining only their hold upon the port of Kheledûl and several small encampments among the Blue Mountains. Many travelled beyond the Ered Luin at the command of a wight masquerading as their chieftain, Skorgrím. While regathering their strength, they discovered the ruins of one of the ancient cities of their forebears, a long-abandoned delving that they renamed Sarnúr.
In Sarnúr, the Dourhands and their evil allies are mustering their forces to begin a final assault upon the Longbeards of Thorin’s Hall and the elves of Duillond. The dwarves of the Blue Stone Garrison have begun recruitment efforts to turn aside the wrath of the Dourhands by going on the offensive. Until the threat from Sarnúr is removed, the dwarves of Thorin’s Hall will be able to lend little aid to the efforts against Angmar. - [2]
