I think it kind of rhymes with 'edifice' or *'Irifice' or something.

Can someone give me a word for the face of a mountainous brown rock?

  • Thanks @jimm101 If you don't mind, may I ask you why shouldn't we change the title. I thought it would be better removed and added in body.

  • It's more in line with the author's original intent, and clarifies the question. The question isn't for any word, but a rhyming one.
