Have a look at the Pent map in G:CotHW and find 'Pent Hills'. This is the
same range IMO.

>Now, what exactly happened here?

The standard explanation for when a Hill goes missing is that the Dragon
that was sleeping under it woke up and moved on. This is really a 'Just
So' story which may or may not be true. Frex, Elder Secrets cites the
Tobros Mountains of Dorastor as an example of a Dragon sleeping under
the hill whereas the entity beneath it is actually Tobros the Giant
poisoned long ago by Bagog.

Of course Argrath's Saga does mention the Seven Dragons...
