Highpass Hall was a small dwarven community near the southern mouth of the ‘Highpass’. This was an ancient dwarven road high in the Caellach mountains. The Highpass road itself begins near the valley of Alduin, and continues due north across the mountains Ending on the other side. In some places the road is paved out in stone on the ground, large arched portions span valleys and in places it cuts through mountains. To effectively use the road from the south, one must gain entrance to the Hall.
Highpass Hall was overrun and claimed by a tribe of goblins 620 years prior to present, the same year in which Nargothil fell to the orc hordes of Grummesh.
