Engineers to rappel down Washington Monument

Washington (CNN) - It may look like an action movie being shot on the National Mall Tuesday, but in fact it will be engineers at work, rappelling down the sides of the Washington Monument, looking for damage caused by the August earthquake.

"The engineering team and the rappelling team, a combination of people from Denali National Park in Alaska as well as from an engineering firm, will come out of the windows at the 500-foot level," said Bill Line, spokesman for the National Park Service.
