Mount Gram was a mountain of unspecified location.

History

Mount Gram was inhabited by Orcs led by their King Golfimbul. In Third Age 2747 they attacked much of northern Eriador, but were defeated in the Battle of Greenfields.[1]

Location

The location of Mount Gram has never been established. It is generally assumed that it is one of the Misty Mountains; Robert Foster calls it such (without citing a specific source or reason to do so),[2] and Karen Wynn Fonstad (also without explanation) places it on a promontory in the Ettenmoors.[3] However, as any confirmation lacks, the mountain could be anywhere within the northern Eriador region.
