Passes over the Misty Mountains

I have added the possibility of a minor pass north of the High Pass. This can be inferred by this passage from The Fellowship of the Ring's prologue ('Concerning Hobbits'):

"The Fallohides, the least numerous, were a northerly branch ... They crossed the mountains north of Rivendell and came down the River Hoarwell."

If they came down the Mitheithel, it appears reasonable to deduce that a pass must have existed near the source of that river.--Gigoachef 17:05, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Speculation. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:15, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
I suggest a different wording: "The Fallohides crossed the mountains north of Rivendell... Whether they used one of those passes or another one it is not known." Sage 20:01, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
