Each week, the AWG's Able Squadron conducts a complex training event that creatively utilizes home station facilities and equipment to get at the subterranean problem set. At the rappelling station for this training, AWG members trained on a variety of rappelling and climbing methods techniques that can be used when entering and exiting an underground facility.
