Revision as of 16:44, 30 June 2007 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

The Gelion-Ascar Stockade (unnamed in J.R.R. Tolkien's works) was a fortress built by Haldad of the Haladin to defend his people against Orcs. It was located south of Sarn Athrad, between the Gelion and Ascar rivers. It was laid siege to in the Battle of the Gelion-Ascar Stockade around FA 375, during which Haldad was killed and the stockade badly damaged. Eventually Haleth led the Haladin away, abandoning the refuge.
