cleft (noun) a natural opening, crack, or split in the ground or on the surface of a rock; such a split in the human chin.

A natural formation of a split or a crack in the ground, or on the surface of a mountain, is a cleft. For one climbing up a hill or a mountain such a cleft often gives handhold, to pull themselves up. Clefts in the ground are openings or cracks in the ground, formed naturally. A depression in the middle of the human chin is also a cleft. In the case of some persons, a cleft helps the appearance.

  • In spite of the fear that there might be clefts in the ground into which they may trip and fall, they continued their trek in the woods, even after nightfall, as they had to reach the place in just an hour.
  • In his climb down the mountain, the climber slipped into a cleft on the rock, but fortunately escaped a headlong fall, or major injuries.
