From what I understand, the travel up would be inside something like a cable-car and it would move fairly slowly - could take 24-48 hours to make the climb.

I'd certainly do it if they built one. I wouldn't volunteer to be the first, but I don't see this thing as anything more inherently dangerous than anything else we do on a daily basis (like driving a car).
