Cûl Veleg

From Tolkien Gateway

Cûl Veleg was the middlemost of three peaks (the other two being Dol Tarlang and Cûl Bîn) located in the pass of Tarlang's Neck. The three mountains formed a spur on the southern side of the White Mountains.

According to legend, Cûl Veleg was in origin part of the load of rocks carried by the giant Tarlang.[1]


The name Cûl Veleg is glossed as "Bigload",[1] consisting of cûl ("load") and beleg ("great, mighty").[2]
