I can attest to the truth of this. The only time I've ever discovered
myself disconnecting the last line from the tower while more than a few
feet above the ground was when I was descending and tired. I quickly
rehooked that line and stopped for a break and to gather my thoughts.
Just because you're tired is no reason to forget to think! And you
should stop before you get that tired anyway.
