Cabed-en-Aras was a deep gorge near Brethil through which the river Taeglin ran.


Cabed-en-Aras was known for being the place where Túrin slew Glaurung when the dragon was trying to get through the ravine to attack Brethil. Later both were found by Nienor, and as a result of Glaurung's machinations, she cast herself down the ravine, which was then named by Túrin the Cabed Naeramarth, the Leap of Dreadful Doom.[1] The spot was later considered haunted, and even animals did not come there.[2]


Cabed-en-Aras was Sindarin[3] for Leap of the Deer.[citation needed]
