Hill of the Ear
Hill of Hearing
Description: 'Behold Tol Brandir!' said Aragorn, pointing south to the tall peak. 'Upon the left stands Amon Lhaw, and upon the right is Amon Hen, the Hills of Hearing and of Sight. In the days of the great kings there were high seats upon them, and watch was kept there. ... Ere the shade of night falls we shall come to them. I hear the endless voice of Rauros calling.'
The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 2, Ch 9, The Great River
[Amon Lhaw had on its summit the remains of the ancient stone Seat of Hearing, companion to Amon Hen's Seat of Seeing.
Sam and Frodo landed on the shelving shore of Amon Lhaw after crossing Nen Hithoel en route to Mordor.]
