He has a marked trail laid out.

He does not have to hack his way through the brush

He won’t easily get lost

There is a suspension bridge across the canyon

He only needs to bring a snack, some water and suntan lotion along

There is little or no skill required

He’ll still sweat, he’ll still feel like he accomplished and he’ll still enjoy the view (Source: SAP)
