Tales from Elrond
Thunderspire Mountain is one of the tallest mountains in the south western part of Elrond. This lone mountain’s pinnacle is usually wreathed in thunderstorm clouds, but on rare days it can be seen from a distance. From the East Way, a steep cobbled path turns north into the mountain, and then into the Seven-Pillared Hall through the Minotaur Gate. Beneath Thunderspire Mountain is the ancient ruins of the minotaur city of Saruun Khel near an entrance to the Underdark.
