7 HERNDON MONUMENT CLIMB


The Herndon Monument Climb traditionally marks the end of the freshman, or Plebe, year at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. The class, numbering over 1000, has a final challenge: scale the Herndon Monument, and replace the Plebe beanie at the top with a Midshipman's cap. The monument has been liberally coated with lard the evening before by upperclassmen, who also helpfully spray water on the plebes during the climb. CLICK HERE FOR 2004 HERNDON CLIMB or
