Near the end of the third century b.S., during the Third Sarvonian War, this area was near the site of a great battle between the invading orcish forces, and the Avennorians under their king Fhalsnir together with the Tethinrhim elves. While the allied elves and humans could do nothing to stop the orcs from crossing the Mithral Mountains through Crazy Woman Pass, they were victorious here. They left on the Point, as a testament to their victory - so legend says - a gory pile of orc-heads taller than the tallest elf. The pile stood there for many years until flesh wore to bone.
