Don't know that it would have helped in my case, since you can't move casual obstacles in front of the lie.

I played a tourney where my disc stuck into a steep cliff side, impossible to stand on unless also holding onto a branch of a manzanita behind my lie (which, as I understand it is permitted, though it did bend just a little). The disc stuck in maybe 5 feet high from ground and the cliff continued on just as steep, climbing directly away from the basket, which was about 20 feet from the base of the cliff. Bringing the disc down, would be advancing it toward the pin, but it would be impossible to scale and find a safe stance further up.

I was pretty much dangling like a monkey to get a foot behind my disc, and made the putt. Was this a legal stance, and if so, if one was less deft and couldn't pull this off, how would they proceed? (The disc was pin deep, and flew directly over the basket.)

We have a similar feature at one of the courses where I run an event. The course rule is you get .5 m relief away from the cliff wall.

I have seen a cool trick to deal with cliff/ledge of this sort. Have the TD put an ob line with no ob area at the top or bottom of the ledge. It allows you 1 meter relief from the line but no possible way to actually be ob as only the line is ob. Some part of the disc will always be in bounds.

It took me one minute to find this in the rules.
Well done, my friend.

If you must distinguish between a rat snake and black mamba, as "harmful" then what is the difference here?

That's racial profiling. Green mambas can kill too, but mention black mamba and people immediately assume the worst.
