What better way to mark the culmination of a year of intensive training than by scurrying to the top of a 21-foot-tall oil-slicked obelisk with your nearly-naked peers?

For the roughly 1,000 freshman at the U.S. Naval Academy, wrapping up the year by climbing the Herdon Monument is a rite of passage.

Some traditions should never be broken.

This year they accomplished their task of knocking off a cap on the tip and replacing it with a new one in 1 hour, 12 minutes and 30 seconds, which we hear is quite fast.
