Surely you could apply that same sentence to abseilling? It requires mental and physical toughness; some problem solving and usually in a magical environment.

I love the abseil into Pierces Pass via Mirrorball Pinnacle - i've heard Weaselburger is quicker, but Mirrorball is such a fun experience. Same with the cave network around Boar's head. I can see the appeal of just doing that for the sake of it.
