Distant, far-off things.

Nothing immediately deadly, but sunstroke and sunburn are causes for concern.

There are paraterranean lakes and rivers which sometimes spill out from the rock, and I suppose some of them might be frozen.

It's very difficult to traverse the cliff face in any direction, far more so than to traverse the land and sea of Actuality. It's also far more dangerous. Travel in any direction has to be very slow or, if downward, terminally fast. But no matter how far up anyone travels, there is always more cliff towering far above.
