The Cliffride was a street in the Castle Ward of Waterdeep that crawled up the north spur of Mount Waterdeep.[1][2][3][4]

GeographyEdit

The Cliffride was located on the seaward side of the northern spur of Mount Waterdeep. It began at Julthoon Street and climbed in a southeasterly direction until it reached New Olamn bardic college (established in the Year of the Staff, 1366 DR).[1][4][5][6] It was paved with gravel and very steep. It became even more treacherous in winter when covered in snow or when ice tended to form on everything the sea spray touched.[2][3]

Notable LocationsEdit
