The far northern range of the Iron Mountains1
The Ered Engrin, the range of mountains in the far north of the World that were raised by Melkor as a defence against any attack on Utumno. His lesser fortress of Angband lay in this range.
This rather vague map follows a rough sketch map from volume 4 of The History of Middle-earth. Though lacking in specific detail, this is the clearest picture we have of the entire range of the Iron Mountains as they ran across the northern continent of Middle-earth. For a closer view of the detail at the important western end of the Mountains, see the entry for Ered Engrin.
