The area of Forodwaith that lay north of Eriador was known as Forochel, together with the great ice-bay and cape, which carried the same name. This area roughly corresponded with the area where the Blue Mountains and the Iron Mountains once met. It was also around this area that the ancient stronghold of Morgoth, Utumno, was once located in the First Age. Forochel inhabited a tribe of brown skinned people called the Lossoth, or Snowmen. The chief of these tribes was given the Ring of Barahir.
