That's why free climbing is a sport, and fell walking a pastime...  "it all going wrong" plays little part in the latter, despite the goal being similar...

In my experience it's spectacular up to the point you know it's all gone wrong

It can be spectacular and exciting after that point too in my experience.....

I'd firmly be nursing crap coffee and limp bacon rolls in those conditions (assuming I'd left the windsurf kit in the shed, or there wasn't a starbucks nearby )
