Cirith Ungol, also known as the Morgul Pass, was the pass through the western mountains of Mordor and the only way towards the land from the west.
It is not known whether the pass and the tower were called Cirith Ungol when the Men of Gondor held it since Shelob could not have inhabited the cavernous entrance of the pass at that time.
