The Ered Gorgoroth (meaning Mountains of Terror) was a mountain range in the north of Beleriand.
South of the Ered Gorgoroth lay the land of Nan Durgotheb (the Valley of Dreadful Death) infested by giant spiders that Ungoliant evilly used to breed a race of terrible arachnid offspring among them Her most infamous daughter Shelob.
The Ered Gorgoroth had no known passes, and even the Orcs of Morgoth passed it by. In all of the First Age, only Beren son of Barahir is said to have passed the mountain range, and he never spoke of this terrible journey.
