Blue Quadrant
From: FM 7-22 October 2012


The blue quadrant consists of the following obstacles.


Soldiers vault, jump, or climb over a moving log.


Soldiers approach the underside of the climbing ladder, climb up to and over the top of the ladder, then climb down the opposite side.


Soldiers move from one end of the obstacle to the other by weaving their bodies under one bar and over the next.


Soldiers step over each bar by either alternating legs or using the same leg each time while making an effort not to use their hands.


Soldiers walk or run along logs while maintaining their balance.


Soldiers jump from one log to another until obstacle is negotiated from near to far side (Figure E-10).
