That's the way I look it at it.
For me, I take a more philosophical/logical dilemma approach to it especially since it's a Nolan film. With the rope, you are anchored too close to the wrong side of the wall. Thus, you can't reach it no matter how talented of a jumper you are.
So the philosophical inclination would that you have to rely on faith to escape. You have to risk dying to be able to escape.
