Helm's Gate

Helm's Gate was a passage between two forbidding cliff-faces, the northern side guarded by the castle of the Hornburg, that led to the fastness of Helm's Deep in the White Mountains. The Gate was walled from north to south, and was the site of the ferocious siege known as the Battle of the Hornburg.[1]
