Cirith Gorgor

Cirith Gorgor by Ted Nasmith.

Cirith Gorgor is the point were the mountain ranges of the Ered Lithui and the Ephel Dúath met, to the northwest of Mordor. It was sealed by the Morannon (Black Gate) and guarded by the two Towers of the Teeth, Carchost and Narchost.

It was also called the Haunted Pass of Cirith Gorgor, because of the evil that lurked there.
