U.S. Marines and U.S. Airmen practice High Angle Rescue techniques at Mt. Lemmon, Ariz.

Release Number: 010615

U.S. Marines and U.S. Air Force Reserve Pararescuemen conducted High Angle Rescue Training at Mt. Lemmon, Ariz., 1 June.

During the training, the servicemembers practiced tying several knots, anchoring the ropes safely to the terrain, repelling down a cliffside unassisted, and returning to the initial elevation point. 

Mt. Lemmon is the ideal location to conduct this training due to its terrain and various elevations.

The U.S. Marines are from the 1st Force Reconnaissance and the Expeditionary Operations Training Group at Camp Pendleton, Calif. and the Airmen are from the 304th Rescue Squadron at Portland Air National Guard Base, Ore.
