Yes, but  railing would be environmentally un-cool.

Mike and other "yanks",

I cannot believe there is no railing around the edge of that place:
surely a popular jumping off point, and the edges do not look stable to
me, especially to the left of centre. I tramped all around the area but
as Mike says, there are not too many real options beyond this image,
though most people seem to take the shot a little to the left of where
I dangled ;-)
