You can make it to Galtrev sans escort, but you do need someone to clear trolls at the Isengard entrance as well as MOBs before then. We had a few escorts to start, and a couple chickens who got taken out by stealthed MOBs switched over to continue the fun. We also had some passersby who saw our parade, IM'd to ask what was going on, and joined in the fun too!
