Yes, we can.

2304.1 Megan Do you think we should keep going up?
2305.1 Cueball We can't be more than a day or so from the top. There may be people there.
2306.1 Megan Like the people in the hills?
2306.2 Cueball We're a long way from there.
2307.1 Cueball We don't know what's past the mountains. If we go up a little more, we'll be able to see. There could be villages.
2308.1 Megan And if there's no one there, we won't be much farther from home than we are now.
If they haven't slept since the beginning of Time, then they built the castles and walked all the way over here in a day, and it would make no sense to climb another day to the top of the mountain, instead of walking home. Cueball may not be the brightest ball on the table, but he's not that dense. (And Megan even less so.)
ETA: awesome mashup, BlitzGirl!
