The northernmost peaks of the White Mountains

Prominent peaks of the White Mountains

The three steep-sided mountain peaks that stood out above the gorge of Helm's Deep. They were the northernmost of the White Mountains, and so they also marked the southern edge of the wide Gap of Rohan. The name 'Thrihyrne' is from the Old English for 'three-horned' or 'three-cornered'.
