Places in Middle-earth
Region: Rhovanion/Misty Mtns
Description: At the Battle of the Five Armies, the wood-elves made their stand on Ravenhill.
“The Mountain lay dark and silent before them and ever higher above them. They made their first camp on the western side of the great southern spur, which ended in a height called Ravenhill. On this there had been an old watch-post; but they dared not climb it yet, it was too exposed.”
On the Doorstep, pg. 216, The Hobbit
“This very height was once named Ravenhill, because there was a wise and famous pair, old Carc and his wife, that lived here above the guard-chamber.”
The Gathering of the Clouds, pg. 269, The Hobbit
