The building of Hoover Dam was a ray of hope for a nation struggling
with hard times. Newsreel images of the high-scalers who worked the
canyon walls ignited public interest in the project.


"Scaling" is the process of removing loose rock from
a cliff face. The high scalers dangled from ropes, using
jackhammers to drill holes for dynamite. After a blast,
they returned to pry off loose rock.
