The Slag-hills is an area within The Wastes.
The Slag-hills are great mounds of debris, composed of blasted stone and earth, that had been piled over many years by toiling Orcs in front of the Morannon.


North amid... noisome pits lay the first of the great heaps and hills of slag and broken rock and blasted earth, the vomit of the maggot-folk of Mordor; but south and now near loomed the great rampart of Cirith Gorgor, and the Black Gate amidmost, and the two Towers of the Teeth tall and dark upon either side.[1]
Therefore Aragorn now set the host in such array as could best be contrived; and they were drawn up on two great hills of blasted stone and earth that orcs had piled in years of labour. Before them towards Mordor lay like a moat a great mire of reeking mud and foul-smelling pools.[2]
The men of the West were trapped, and soon, all about the grey mounds where they stood, forces ten times... their match would ring them in a sea of enemies....
Upon the one hill Aragorn stood with Gandalf, and there fair and desperate was raised the banner of the Tree and Stars. Upon the other hill hard by stood the banners of Rohan and Dol Amroth.... And about each hill a ring was made facing all ways, bristling with spear and sword.[3]

  • The quests of Dûm Boha vector you to Thurindol at the Small Ranger Camp in the Slag-hills.
There are two entrances to Dûm Boha -
from the second level of Haerondir [36.9S, 7.9W]
from the "main entrance" off the plain behind Hareondir [36.1S, 6.5W]
If you first obtain the Bane of the Serpent from Gladhir in Haerondir and then proceed into Dûm Boha via the path behind him, you will receive the remaining landscape quests as you enter the camp.
If you enter Dûm Boha from the "main entrance" off the plain behind Hareondir, you will get all quests bestowed as you enter.
