'Would you say you are skilled with hammer and nail, friend? It doesn't really matter, but it would be a help if you were. Some of my kin have been looking to get the trade passing through the mountains again, and I'm doing my part to help.

'The trouble is that the mountains are dangerous even in summer, and during winter only a fool would expect to come through without incident. And there are threats in the mountains beyond the cold and the snows -- goblins and worse!

'There's an old keep far to the north, and evil Men have overtaken it for their own purposes. It's a ways north of the road, but I don't want any dwarves to get turned about in a storm and happen upon it unawares. I'd appreciate it if you could post this warning sign I've made in front of the slope leading up to the keep. There's already a suitable post at the base of the slope -- just affix the sign to it and hurry back. Head north along the road, and then leave the road and cut north and east across the snowy fields. It's quite a ways, so be prepared for a good hike!'


Vighar Roadwalker, a dwarf at Gloin's camp, wants to post signs warning travellers away from dangerous locations in the mountains.


Objective 1
Post Voghar's sign outside Rhudauran Keep

Evil Men have established themselves in a keep north of the road, across a wide and snow-covered field to the north-east of the source of the Bruinen.

Vighar Roadwalker has given you a sign to post just outside the entrance of the keep occupied by evil Men north of the road in the Misty Mountains.

Objective 2
Talk to Vighar Roadwalker

Vighar Roadwalker is at Glóin's camp, north of Rivendell.

Vighar will be pleased to hear that you have posted the sign he gave you in front of the keep occupied by evil Rhudaurans.


The signpost is at approximately 18.5S, 2.4W.
