Geographical Features Edit

The Misty Mountains form a "T" shape with the Angmar Mountains and the Grey Mountains, inside of which is the Withered Heath, home to the last remaining cold drakes and were-worms. It runs 795 miles to the south, until the Gap of Rohan, a fertile valley that separates the Misty Mountains from the White Mountains. the Misty Mountains are the most high in Middle-Earth, and some important peaks in the Misties include Caradhras,

Formation Edit

In the first age, Melkor raised the Misty Mountains as a barrier for Orome, stopping him from hunting the creatures of darkness. Later, it served as a deterrent for the Elves to cross into Beleriand.
