Rappel down a 100ft free fall and hope people catch you.
We do this as part of a workshop for educators at the United States Marine Corps Recruit Center in San Diego, California.
If you are afraid of heights like me, this is for you.
Part of boot camp involves helping recruits get over their fears and get off this rappel tower.
We climbed 3 steep steps and descended with a rope.
I was actually racing a Marine and got stuck in the air and was spinning around for a minute.
To be honest, I got a little sick, but I got better.
It’s not scary at all because the rope harness is securely fastened. But it can be uncomfortable.
