Valor Pass is a 45 mile cut through the Terem Mountains leading to the Valarian Valley.

The pass can be as 2 miles wide in some places, but will
Valor Hold: Actually made up of two forts with an adjoining pair of walls in between.
Quarry Lake: A small in circumference but very deep freshwater lake made by a filled in quarry or strip-mine.
The common belief which is back up by scholars is that Valor Pass was created by ancient Dwarven Nations to lead to Valarian Valley which is where they planned on building an above ground city for trade during one of the Ages of Prosperity.
