Carrock

The Carrock is a huge rock that sits in the middle of the Anduin, a short distance west of Beorn’s House. The river flows around it on both sides, but a series of huge stepping stones leads to the muddy eastern shore. A small shallow cave bores into one side of the rock, next to a worn set of steps leading up to the flat surface above.

The Carrock is a sacred place to the Beornings. Ceremonies and meetings are held there; trials, marriages, funerals, councils of war and celebrations of good fortune.
