This hill may have had special acoustical properties that enabled a person on its summit to hear for miles around (analogous to the Seat of Seeing on Amon Hen).
Description and history
Amon Lhaw was formerly within the northern borderlands of Gondor, to the extent that a high seat (possibly named the Seat of Hearing) was built there. It was one of the two watchtowers of the marchlands of Gondor. However, centuries before the War of the Ring; by then, it had fallen under the influence of Mordor.
In the year TA 3019 following the Breaking of the Fellowship at Parth Galen, Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee took a boat across Nen Hithoel and landed on the southern slopes of Amon Lhaw by means of a shelving shore.
