“All of a sudden they heard a howl away down hill, a long shuddering howl. It was answered by another away to the right and a good deal nearer to them; then by another not far away to the left. It was wolves howling at the moon, wolves gathering together!”
“Over them swooped the eagles; the dark rush of their beating wings smote them to the floor or drove them far away; their talons tore at goblin faces. Other birds flew to the tree-tops and seized the dwarves, who were scrambling up now as far as ever they dared to go.”
“Very soon Bilbo was laid down, trembling with fear, on a wide shelf of rock on the mountain-side. There was no path down on to it save by flying; and no path down off it except by jumping over a precipice.”
~The Hobbit, Chapter 6: Out of the Frying-Pan, Into the Fire
We are nearly halfway to the Carrock!
As someone with a fear of heights, I’ll be quite happy when my feet are planted back on solid ground 🙂 Until next time!
