Ten of the best cliffs in literature

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best cliffs in literature.

One book on his list:
The Guns of Navarone by Alistair MacLean

Led by Captain Keith Mallory, a New Zealand mountaineer, a British team attempts to knock out the German guns on the Aegean island of Navarone. The only way to get to them is via the island's "unclimbable" south cliff. Do they manage it? Well, who won the war?
Read about the other entries on the list.
