Rock Climbing Skills of 10th Mountain Division Soldier

View taken from above of a Tenth Mountain Division soldier rock climbing at Camp Hale, Colorado. He is wearing a helmet and khaki uniform. The division practiced its rock climbing skills in preparation for the invasion of Italy. Apart from mountain climbing, trainees were also taught skiing, snow survival skills (such as building snow caves), and winter combat. Camp Hale itself was active for just three years; it was deactivated in November 1945 and the 10th Mountain Division moved to Texas
