The river Isen (Éo. "[of] Iron"; S. Sîr Angren or simply Angren, of the same meaning) arose in the Nan Curunír and flowed through Drúwaith Iaur into the Belegaer near Angrast. Though the Angren was not a large river, there were few places where one could safely cross, one being the Fords of Isen. As it passed between the Westmarch and Enedhwaith, the Angren formed a narrow and deep canyon, narrow enough for a horse to leap in many places. The strong current made travel by boat upstream difficult, and the river's steep banks prevented landing along most of its length. A road which paralleled the river was an easier alternative.
