Cûl Bîn was the southernmost of three peaks (the other two being Dol Tarlang and Cûl Veleg) located in the pass of Tarlang's Neck. The three mountains formed a spur on the southern side of the White Mountains.

According to legend, Cûl Bîn was in origin part of the load of rocks carried by the giant Tarlang.[1]

[edit] Etymology

The name Cûl Bîn is glossed as "Little Load",[1] consisting of cûl ("load") and bîn ("little", from pîn).[2]
