Tarlang's Neck

Revision as of 03:51, 4 July 2006 by Ebakunin (Talk | contribs)

Tarlang was originally the name for a long, mountainous spur of the southern White Mountains, thrusting out between the Blackroot Vale to the west and the land of Lamedon to the east. Where this spur met its parent range, between the sources of the Blackroot and Ciril rivers, a gap formed between the mountains to the north and the south, providing a pass between Erech and Lamedon. This was Tarlang's Neck, and it formed part of the route by which Aragorn led the Army of the Dead on their journey to the relief of Minas Tirith in the War of the Ring.
