Here's a couple of belated photos from when we went rappelling at the Manhattan Fire Department's training tower the week before we left Fort Riley.

This photo is taken from the top of the tower of some of us waiting for our turn.

Here I am going over the edge.

Here I am on belay. The belay man holds the rope at the bottom. If the person on rappel loses control, the person on belay pulls down on the rope. This has a braking affect on the rappeller so he/she doesn't come crashing down. Nobody lost control so luckily the belay men didn't have to do their jobs!
