Places in Middle-earth
Type: Fortresses, Towers, Defenses
Location: A castle at the point where the Ephel Duath met the hills of Udûn.
Description: "A few miles north, high up in the angle where the western spur branched away from the main range, stood the old castle of Durthang, now one of the many orc-holds that clustered about the dale of Udûn. A road, already visible in the growing light, came winding down from it, until only a mile or two from where the hobbits lay it turned east and ran along a shelf cut in the side of the spur, and so went down into the plain, and on to the Isenmouthe."
