Orfalch Echor

Revision as of 22:59, 25 October 2011 by Gamling (Talk | contribs)

The Orfalch Echor was the ravine of the Dry River in the Encircling Mountains, the route by which the hidden city of Gondolin was approached. At its lower end was the Seventh Gate, the Gate of Steel and at the upper end was a high sward that offered a view of Tumladen and the city in its center.[1]
