What do you think of the word 'Acrest'?

It's not a real word, but I'm writing a novel and I want to use it. I think the meaning is fairly obvious, and it sounds like a real word.

Updates:
1mo Used in a sentence: "Acrest the hill, Eron was granted a full view of the lush green valley, and the village below."

      Oh alright, good to know lol
      I thought people would be able to pick it apart, this is actually very useful. I'll update the question to put it into context, which should help.

      By that same logic, the word 'atop' doesn't make sense either.

      It doesn't but it's already an acknowledged part of our language and serves a very specific function.
