Precipice

Precipice

<pres-sa-pis>

cliff; steep; sheer drop;

a side of a mountain that slopes down sharply.

He came to the precipice and stopped before he slid down.

Memory trick:
precipice reminds of precarious or dangerous

Used at work:
We avoid a precipice of problems by testing our software.
