The Apollynes, or the Apollyne mountain range, are a mountain range that parallels the Rim of the Escarpment. The Apollynes are highly terraced. The foothills are rocky, have lots of shrubs.
Between the two lies the Betwixt Valley, a fertile, irrigated stretch of farmland. The Icon Pass runs through the mountains.
