The Mountain's Throat is a landmark within the Northern High Pass in The Misty Mountains. [21.0S, 6.1E]

"The Main Gate" of Goblin-town is located next to a small pond of water, under the northern-most faces of the mountains, north-east of Ghâshru and the many small goblin camps. Just south of the entrance lies conveniently a Camp Site Fire with a Mustering Horn. Curiously, no goblins stand at guard in this area, maybe naïvely trusting the giant stone gate, or maybe not to advertise the gate as such.

In spite of being the "main gate" into Goblin-town, adventurers are supposed to use another entrance for their secretive missions rather than stamping through the main gate. Above this location; find The Black Crack at the end of a steep path winding itself up the mountain-side, beginning at the north-east from here.

Travel Information

From Vindurhal, which has a Milestone, head straight east and around Ghâshru keeping the goblin camp at your left side until the path straight north is clear, and head for the Camp Site Fire just outside this "main gate". The same route may be used for the Black Crack, see its page for the final distance.

From Hrimbarg, which has a Stable-master, ride northwards (with just a notch westwards) towards the Camp Site Fire of this site. Welcome!
