Upon consideration it's actually realistic that traders continue to try and make it through the Wildeeps in spite of the appalling death rate. If you consider the mortality rate in the early European expeditions for spices in Asia and slaves in west Africa, it seems profit is as potent a motivator in risking death as peer pressure.
