Most patrols ride atop the Wall on mules, but one in four walks along the base to look for tunneling.

Still, there are two things that explain the irrational Wildling raids on the north for me best. The key aspect is that Wildling society is not one that is based on a economy of goods, services and profit, so market economic rationalizations might not work. Rather, there are two social mechanisms that seem to be central in Wildling society: one is wife-stealing and the other is personal prestige. Both will be very strong motivators for groups of raiders crossing the Wall.
BTW: I really recommend the new Night's Watch SIFRP book to all of you (if you haven't already pre-ordered it), especially if you are more interested in the game mechanics of crossing the wall and the layout of the Gift!

Plus the storie of the Jons Battle at the wall sounds more logic. Remember some of the real (and the fake) brothers on the wall were hit by arrows - but i honestly could not imagine any bowman who can shot 600 feet vertical...
300 feet are still a almost impossible thing...
