It certainly can be a fair bit of buggerising around.

Maybe the question should be 'How desperate are you for a climb when no partner is available?'; as it certainly fills that niche.

I find roped solo leading very fulfilling, particularly on hardish aid as the timeframe involved allows me to test my mental reserves. After a good session (when everything flows, as compared to snarfus), I feel like I have been through a detoxification of sorts, where the crap (mental and otherwise!), seems to get purged.
It also heightens my sense of awareness / clarity of perception not only at a simple eg visual level, but also in an 'appreciative of life' (and relationships), sort of way.
