    Why are you looking for new marks in the dark, thats extremely dangerous, especially on a cliff you dont know.

    High cliff is simple to find its about 5 seconds off the main track, but one wrong move in the dark and you will hit the scar below you faster than those 5 seconds.

    please take care if your wandering around on them cliffs, even when you've been before you can still get lost , have good footwear as suddenly you may find yourself next to the edge ,you can fish of any ledge but lifting a decent fish up such a height takes a bit of cool and a bit of luck and if you haven't hooked it well you can lose it when lifting as there isn't many places where you get a straight lift as the weight of the fish when lifting will make it swing and maybe snag on the cliff face on the lift, if you are going to give the cliffs a try why not go for a recce during daylight, but more than that "make sure you have good footwear and a good headlight" as its a long way down if you fall.

    maybe my wording was wrong.
    we didn't t leave the path but were interested in finding where you did for the future.
    could see where we wanted to be but not where to leave the path for future sessions.
    agree a daytime recce is needed but thought someone could help out re where you leave the path.
    were not cliff novices and have the requirex gear.

    Just to the right of the Rabbit Holes is the Shotstones , you fish them at the bottom of the slope [ I haven't been down for many years ] just to the right of Dhoystones is High Cliff

    Walking from Sandsend along the track its about 100-200 yards this side of the rabbits. Theres a Bush on your right just before you come to a very small fence. The access is by the side of that Bush. If you reach that small fence on your right you have gone too far.

    The Place Allan is talking about you need to go down the cliff and the access is a lot closer to Sandsend on the track.

    That's how I find it Glenn, as soon as you've walked down the dip and back up along the footpath look to the right for that little fence and in front is the path down and back on yourself. Or look for the already 3 or more headlamps lighting up the sea ;-)

    Does anybody still fish at the Top of the World (to the right of Bernie's Ledge).
    I used to fish there in the 80's-90's on club nights, when there was only a small bit of sea running.
    Used to catch in those conditions.

    Yes Jim They do. Always seems best on a big ebbing tide when its calm.
