Dimrost was a waterfall on the stream of Celebros near Cabed-en-Aras in the forest of Brethil.


Dimrost flowed down to meet the river Taeglin on the borders of Brethil.[1] The falls raised a fine spray into the air, from which they took their name from. Above Dimrost, the Men of Brethil had constructed a wooden bridge to cross the Celebros. From the bridge, a wide view could be seen, showing the Ravines of Taeglin about two miles distant. When Níniel first came to Brethil with Túrin, the view from the bridge upset her greatly where she started shivering uncontrollably. Afterwards, the name of Dimrost was changed to Nen Girith, the "Shuddering Water". Her foresighted fears of her own death here were only realized when the ravines she had seen from the bridge would be the place where she would die.[2]

Manthor died near the falls of an arrow-wound, on the day Húrin left Brethil.The History of Middle-earth, Vol. XI: The War of the Jewels: Part 3, chapter 1, "The Wanderings of Húrin"


Dimrost was a Sindarin word that meant 'Rainy Stair'.[3]
