BLACKSTONE - Amanda Notz, a life skills teacher at Blackstone-Millville Regional High School, pauses about three feet from the top of a 25-foot-tall fiberglass rock climbing wall that has been erected in a corner of the school parking lot.
The wall has three climbing sides and an automated belay and hydraulic system that allows climbers to slowly descend from the top.
"Don't look down," U.S. Army Sgt. Logan O. Saunders yells up.
Notz adjusts her harness, makes one last reach and then taps the buzzer on top of the wall before lowering herself back down.
