|Location||Head of the Ringló Vale|
|Etymology||Probably S. ath- "across", as in athrad "ford or crossing", ethraid plural + ring "cold"|
|Events||Passing of the Grey Company|
Ethring was a ford in Southern Gondor.
Ethring was a major crossing point, maybe even the only one, of the river Ringló. It was located near the head of the Ringló Vale, some fifty miles beneath the sources of the river in the White Mountains. The mountain road from Erech to Linhir (and Pelargir beyond) went by Ethring, so Aragorn and the Oathbreakers passed through the location during the War of the Ring.
