The Chimney Sweep

How would you feel about gaining entry through such an access point as a chimney?

Santa is that you...?!

In numerical terms such access points only allow one to the very maximum of two through at a time, plus the fact that you'd probably have to internal rappel in a cramped space. Now saying that, a door allows one to two through at a time, the difference is how well it can be backed up by other teams and the fact you can break contact from it.

I've seen a couple of small space entries made. They were also part of the 10% that I referred to as being stealth operations out of all of the missions I participated in, while in the Army.

Were they made by a team or a solo dude?

Two man team to make an easier entry for the rest of the team. Both very small stature guys, chosen specifically.
