Very Steep cliffs

Has anyone ever created near vertical cliffs is WM?

I ask as I think it would be to cool to create something like the white cliffs of dover in WM, image here:

The problem with heightmaps in terrains is the lack of detail on steep angles, that's why it's better to avoid angles near the max 90 mark.

There should always be meshes to support the look of steep cliffs.

Meshes or use triplanar shader for steep terrain parts.
