Mount Gram was a mountain inhabited by Orcs.
The location of Mount Gram has never been established and the mountain could have been anywhere within the northern Eriador region.
The Tale of Years mentions that in T.A. 2740 "Orcs renew their invasions of Eriador", obviously referring to those of the Misty Mountains, mentioned in the immediate previous entries. "The Goblins of Mount Gram" who invaded the Shire in 2747 obviously were a subsequent wave of them.
John D. Rateliff considers the Norse name of the mountain (representing Northern Mannish) and locates it north-eastern of the Shire, suggesting that it refers to the Misty Mountains: "particularly associated with the goblins throughout the Hobbit, also seem to be the mountains closest to Bilbo's home". He also considers the possibility that it is another name for Mount Gundabad.
