Tarlang's Neck was a pass between Erech and Lamedon formed by Tarlang (the 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) and its parent range, between the sources of the Blackroot and Ciril rivers
A local legend among the indigenous people of Gondor told of giants and one of them called Stiff-neck who tripped and broke his neck. The other giants did not clean up his body, which became incorporated in the land instead. The giant's neck became Tarlang's Neck, his head Dol Tarlang, and the stones he was carrying Cûl Veleg and Cûl Bîn.
