    A soldier from the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group conducts a "slack" rappel during subterranean operations training held Oct. 24 here. 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. A slack rappel (an informal term), is a technique utilized by rappellers to bound over or clear an object during descent. (U.S. Army Photo by Lt. Col. Sonise Lumbaca)
