Mount Dolmed was a mountain in the Ered Luin.
Mount Dolmed loomed over the only known pass from Eriador into Beleriand. It was here that according to the Dwarves two of the Fathers of the Dwarves, the founders of the Broadbeams and the Firebeards, awoke. Their descendants later established the Dwarven cities of Nogrod and Belegost.
The two cities were established on the Eastern side of the mountain. Just a little of North-east of Dolmed was Belegost, and a little to the South-east was Nogrod.
In YOTT 1497, the First Battle of Beleriand was fought between the Elves, and the forces of Morgoth. In the end the the Elves had the victory and the surviving Orcs fled east toward the Ered Luin. They were however met by the Dwarves who annihilated the rest of them.
However the maps of the Third Age, show a prominent unidentified mountain exactly on the location of Dolmed in the map of Beleriand. This coupled with possible misunderstanding Tolkien's maps, therefore make it possible that Dolmed survived.
