Many of you may not know that I'm the photographer for MCW. Over the weekend we had and FTX (Field Training Exercise). Here are some great shots that I took hanging from a rope about 25 feet in the air.
Over the weekend we did a lot of rappelling, ascending and lanes to work on our skills. The first year trainees earned their blackhats (a symbol of being in the company), and the level 2 candidates earned their ram's head device (a symbol of a technical assault climber). It had rained all weekend, so needless to say I was cold and wet, but that doesn't stop MCW from having fun!
