The Mountain's Throat
Region: Misty Mountains
Area: Northern High Pass
Location: [21.0S, 6.1E]

The Mountain's Throat is a landmark within 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 Northern High Pass Camp, where Glóin and two of his friends offer many tasks for those brave enough to enter the goblin kingdom. Curiously, no goblins stand at guard in this area, maybe naively trusting the giant stone gate, or maybe simply to avoid unwanted attention.

Map of Goblin-town

In spite of being the main gate into Goblin-town, adventurers may want to use another entrance for their missions rather than barging through the main gate. High above this location; the Black Crack provides a more covert means of entry where it lies at the end of a steep path beginning nearby and winds itself up the mountainside.


From Vindurhal, which has a Milestone, head straight east and around Ghâshru keeping the goblin camp at the left-hand side until the path straight north is clear, and head for Glóin's camp just outside. 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 Glóin's camp.
At Northern High Pass Camp is Camp Site Fire with a Mustering Horn.
