Carach Angren - (Sindarin) or Isenmouthe (Westron) - the pass between the small valley, Udûn, and the larger Plateau of Gorgoroth.
It is formed where spurs of the ranges of the Ephel Dúath and Ered Lithui met, leaving only a narrow passage between them.
Representing the passage to the Black Gate of the Morannon, Carach Angren was heavily fortified, and both the rocky spurs that overlooked it carried fortresses and watchtowers. Across the passage itself, a wall of earth had been built, and a great ditch had been dug across the opening spanned by a single bridge.[1]
Both Carach Angren and Isenmouthe mean "Iron-mouth.
