Be careful on or below cliffs

Postby Black » Wed Dec 26, 2012 12:32 pm

Meant to say I noticed a bit of a landslip at the south end of Fistral the other day. Made me think twice about getting too close to cliffs from the base or looking over the edge. With the current weather places are becoming very unstable. Just thought I'd mention it.

Bump. This is real people. Cliffs will cave in on you without giving a damn. Look up.

This is also common sense to a forum full of surfers surely?

One of my favourite waves du jour thats been pumping all week is directly below high, overhanging and very unstable cliffs. Loads of folk get changed on the little wave-cut platform right at their base. Sh!ts me right up, especially with all the thawing/freezing and the little waterfalls of snow melt running down them. :shock: :?:

Whitsands, Tregantle end has a nice lump of rock that looks like it wants to depart from the cliffs side...gave that a wide berth after a surf on Wednesday.
