Endless Stair

The Endless Stair depicted in The Lord of the Rings Online

The Endless Stair was a long stairway in Moria built by the Dwarves.

HistoryEdit

These stairs climbed from the lowest point in Middle-earth, to the very peak of the Zirakzigil. At the top of the Endless Stair, a windy chamber known as Durin's Tower was carved from the rock of the mountain, where the Dwarf kings would gaze out over the Misty Mountains. After abandoning Moria in the Third Age, the stair and chamber became legend among the Dwarves. The top of it was destroyed during the battle between Gandalf and the Balrog, on January 23-25 of 3019.[1]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

Video gamesEdit

In The Lord of the Rings Online, the Endless Stair can be observed at various location and altitude levels throughout Moria. Only the bottom of it is accessible though, as the way above is blocked by rubble left by the Balrog's passage.
