The Isenmouthe or Carach Angren was a pass located in the northwestern portion of Mordor, which guarded the southern end of the valley Udûn.

The Isenmouthe lay between where the Ephel Dúath and the Ash Mountains mountain ranges met and was a narrow passage. The pass was heavily guarded with Fortresses and watchtowers overlooking it. There was also a wall of earth built across the passage and a large ditch dug across the entrance spanned only by a single bridge.[1][2]


Isenmouthe and its Sindarin name Carach Angren both mean Iron Jaws.
