Idril's secret way

(Redirected from Idril's Secret Way)
"Tell me, who are you, alone, yourself and nameless?" - Tom Bombadil
This article describes a concept which is mentioned in J.R.R. Tolkien's works, but was never given a definite name.

Idril's secret way was a tunnel under Gondolin that Idril built in secret, and it was through this that the survivors of the Fall of Gondolin escaped.[1]
