Eye Shelob's lair is considered "close to Minas Morgul" in my book...

The gate to Cirith Ungol? (the one Sam knocked himself unconscious against)

White-Hand I think I got it! I think I got it!

The stone head of the king crowned with golden flowers that Frodo, Sam, and Gollum passed on the way to Torech Ungol?

this one is so difficult! me like :D

The stones / rocks from the tunnel of Cirith Ungol that Sam thought were listening to Frodo's laughter and bending over them?

If not:
Did an orc ever touch it/use it? (as mentioned in the book, of course)

Is it the stone in Torech Ungol that Sam was listening to the orcs through, tried to move but couldn't, then climbed over?
