(WMC) - An annual tradition for freshmen at the U.S. Naval Academy is tricky and slippery, but one North Mississippi native rose to the top, finishing the job.
The Herndon Monument climb is a tradition that looks like a lot of fun, but anyone who's ever done it knows it's not easy. Covered with about 50 pounds of vegetable shortening the Herndon Monument is one hard climb.
This year's Naval Academy Freshman class attacked it with fury climbing but many of them were getting nowhere. Up they went and down they came, repeatedly.
In order to get to the top, these students built a human pyramid to help Freshman Michael Landry of Southaven, Mississippi reach the top.
"It just happened that my classmate said, 'Hey, you look pretty light and tall, why don't we get you up there,' and it ended up working out ... Just hoisted me up, and up we go, and I got the cover," he said.
The academy says it took two hours, 19 minutes, and 32 seconds to replace the first-year student's dixie cup hat with a mid-shipman's cover.
It's been a U.S. Naval Academy tradition since 1940.
