Cirith Ninniach

   'Rainbow Cleft', name given by Tuor to the ravine leading from the western hills of Dor-lómin to the Firth of Drengist, and by which he came to the Western Sea; see Annon-in-Gelydh.
   -----
   The rocky pass through the northwestern mountains of Middle-earth that led to the Great Sea at the Firth of Drengist. It was into this cleft that the Gate of the Noldor led, and Tuor escaped this way on his fateful mission to Gondolin.
