The red quadrant consists of the following obstacles.
Soldiers approach the underside of the wall, jump up and grasp the top, and pull themselves over the top. Soldiers slide or jump down the incline to the ground.
A team of Soldiers (4+) jumps or climbs to the first floor and either climb the corner posts or help one another to higher floors. All climbing from the second to the fourth floor is accomplished only on sides containing safety nets. Crash pads are positioned on the non-climbing sides of the obstacle. The top of the obstacle is off limits and will not be negotiated. Only one team should be on the obstacle at a given time. Soldiers descend from floor to floor individually or as a team. They should not jump to the ground from above the first floor and must be instructed on proper technique for landing in the net if they should fall from the obstacle. Soldiers need to draw their knees towards their chest, tuck their chin, and attempt to land on their back or side.
Soldiers climb the vertical ladder to the second rung from the top, climb over the rung, and descend the other side. Only one Soldier is allowed on the obstacle at a time. An instructor is harnessed in at the top of the obstacle to assist Soldiers with obstacle negotiation. Soldiers must be instructed on proper technique for landing on the crash pad if they should fall from the obstacle. They must draw their knees toward their chest, tuck their chin, and attempt to land on their back or side. Pads will be placed at the base of the obstacle on both climbing sides.
Soldiers step on the lower log and assume a prone position on the horizontal logs. They crawl over the logs to the opposite end of the obstacle. Rope gaskets must be attached to the ends of the logs to keep the hands from being pinched and to ensure logs cannot fall from the perpendicular cradle.
Soldiers climb the cargo net up and over at the low end of the obstacle (13 feet). They move across the top of the logs, climb the ladder, and go over the log at the high end (33 feet). An instructor is harnessed in at the high end of the obstacle to assist climbers with obstacle negotiation. Soldiers then climb down the cargo net to the ground. The net will extend from below the log walk. Crash pads are positioned at the base of each cargo net. Soldiers must be instructed on proper technique for landing in the net if they should fall from the obstacle. They must draw their knees towards their chest, tuck their chin, and attempt to land on their back or side (Figure E-12).
