This tomb is located in the south-eastern Thorin's Gate, having its entrance at the Berghold and nearby the entrance to Rockbelly Pit. Skorgrím's Tomb is sealed off and available only for quests, first during the introduction for dwarves and elves and later to find Thrór's hammer.
During the introduction quests for dwarves and elves this tomb is guarded by Gormr and his party of Dourhands. They have decorated the place in honour of their ancestor, Skorgrím, whose body recently has been moved from its usual place, a mystery which begins to cause disturbance around the Middle-earth.
