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.
