    A flight also means an act of fleeing. My guess is the departure of Elendil & sons from Numenor.

    On that note, there is also the Flight of the Noldor.

    nope to all three!

    flight is an action in this case, not an object. Looking for the person, persons or things who did it and where it occurred. I'll give a more substantive hint tomorrow if there are no further guesses.

    How bout the Flight to the Ford? The passage including Frodo fleeing from the Black Riders on Glorfindel's horse. It was pretty far.

    Ok, to get this moving...

    said flight occurs on a stair but is not itself the stair.

    Well then, I'll go back to my guess of the Endless Stair, but instead of the stair itself it could be Gandalf's pursuit of Durin's Bane up the stairs for several days?

    Grats, Wilros. I knew that would make it too easy, but there wasn't much in the way to give as a hint that wouldn't have been a dead give away.

    OK, here's a new riddle: Yellow Roost

    The pile of gold that Smaug or Glaurung napped upon.

    A very plausible answer, but not the one I’m looking for!

    Correct bambu-thrice! A fairly simple riddle, but the best I could do with work being a bit busy these days. We await your two word trivia puzzle.

    If I am remembering this correctly, Gollum had an uncanny ability to climb "down" cliffs that other folks would have difficulty even climbing up.

    Right dude. Wrong instance. This one shouldn't take too much longer I reckon.

    In the Council of Elrond, Legolas describes Gollum hanging onto tree branches with his feet - sort of contrary climbing?

    That's the one. He refused to come down likely 'cause he knew the orcs were fixin to attack as a diversion so he could escape.

    I pass the two word riddle staff to you Stride!

    Sorry for the wait, here's the next one:

    Flighted summons

  20. #1795
    well, probably 8 or 10 things immediately hopped into my mind, but I'll throw out something from one of my favorite parts of the Silmarillion.

    The eagles bringing Huor and Hurin to Gondolin?

    Very plausible answer but not what I had in mind. Flighted can mean several things...

    The Red Arrow of Gondor used to notify the Rohirrim that Gondor was in need of military assistance.

    If this could be taken to mean 'shrill speech', then my guess is when the thrush spoke to Bard about Smaug's weak spot and to fire his arrow there.
