Orc of Cirith Ungol. Ufthak was caught in the web of Shelob, the Great Spider of Cirith Ungol. Shelob was getting ready to eat him. Several days later, Shagrat and his company found Ufthak hanging upside down in Shelob's Lair, not quite dead. Shagrat and his Orcs did not save him, fearing Shelob would sense their presence and maybe eat them as well. Ufthak was presumably later eaten by Shelob.
