Will, your reference to going down the firehouse pole, reminded me of a similar situation, which I once faced. At Midwood High School, in my Sophomore year, the boy's physical education class, were all required to climb a rope, which must have been 20-25 high, and then climb down. We all had to do it with our legs to climb the rope, as well as our arms to pull us up. After we got to the top, we would slowly descend, arm under arm. When I first attempted to do it, it was very tense. However, we were encouraged by our physical education teacher, Mr. Moscowitz, who told us that by learning to climb the rope, it could save our life, someday. Climbing the rope was the hardest part. Going down, was a piece of cake. Some years ago, I inquired if Midwood still required the rope climbing. As I thought, they no longer require it, probably because of liability exposure.
