Zirak-zigil Durin's Tower 2

Rendition of Durin's Tower used for Peter Jackson's films

Durin's Tower was a Dwarven tower that stood on the peak of Zirakzigil above Moria to the south of the Redhorn Pass, at which Gandalf defeated the Balrog "Durin's Bane" in the Battle of the Peak.[1] During the battle, the tower was destroyed.

It could only be reached by a long stairwell which began in the deep far below the mines.[2] This passage would have become blocked in the Battle of the Peak.
