The impenetrable tower of Orthanc formed the core of the defenses, with a vast circular wall one mile in diameter providing the first line of security.The earth itself formed the citadel, for the outer ring was a volcanic cone shaped by the Men of Númenor with the help of Hill-giants and the spire of Orthanc was in fact a pillar of glossy black volcanic rock known as laen.

Angrenost represented the northwestern extent of effective Gondorian power.The King of Gondor maintained a large garrison here to keep the warlike tribes of Dunfearn in check.Travellers on the Old North Road frequently made a sidetrip to Angrenost to exploit it's fine and fully stocked reprovisioning facilities .
