Ras Morthil was the last mountain on a southern spur of the White Mountains. It stood on the cape of Andrast. The mountain chain that ran along the length of the cape was, for a long time, the home of tribes of the Drúedain, but was vacated by the end of the Third Age.

Etymology

Ras is a Sindarin word for "horn" (cf. Caradhras); Morthil is composed of the element mor, "dark, black", and an element that could be either "tine" (til) or "sheen" (thil).
