Cirith Gorgor (Sindarin for Haunted Pass, literally Pass of Extreme Horror) is an area within the Plateau of Gorgoroth.

This pass connects the Slag-hills within the Wastes to Udûn in Gorgoroth. Several Quest NPCs can be found here, but no creatures or resources.

Note: Cirith Gorgor does not have its own map. Opening the map displays the full Plateau of Gorgoroth map. Most of Cirith Gorgor is also displayed on the map of Udûn, and the rest is displayed on the map of the Wastes. It may be helpful to zoom in to these smaller maps to get a better sense of location.

Cirith Gorgor is the narrow pass between the Ephel Dúath and the Ered Lithui, sealed by the Morannon (the Black Gate) and guarded by Carchost and Narchost, the Towers of the Teeth. After the fall of Sauron, the Gate and the Towers collapsed, and the Conquest of Gorgoroth entered through the pass.
