Silvertine, also called Celebdil and Zirakzigil (the literal Westron and Khuzdul translations of the Sindarin name), was one of the three peaks that stood above the Dwarven city of Khazad-dûm. The other two were Caradhras (Redhorn) and Fanuidhol (Cloudyhead).
Celebdil was the southernmost of the Mountains of Moria and the Endless Stair led from the deepest halls of Khazad-dûm up to Durin's Tower on the peak of the mountain. There the final battle between Gandalf and Durin's Bane took place.
