During the [[Fall of Gondolin]], he led his people against the attack of [[Balrogs]] and [[Orcs]] in the northern gate. When the gate was broken, he stirred his kindred against the Balrogs with words of passion, and though many were slain, they slew a number of the fiery creatures "that... was a marvel and dread to the hosts of [[Melko]], for ere that day never had any Balrogs been slain by the hand of Elves or Men". Seeing that they had no way back, Rog rushed his men outside the city, where the folk of the Hammer were hemmed in, and every one of them perished, including him.<ref name="LT2"/>{{rp|178-179}}
