On Wednesday night, the climbing gym hosted the second annual Climbapalooza — an event designed to engage as many people as possible in the world of climbing through quickly devoured food, heavily climbed rock walls, and musicians hanging from the ceiling.
Vanessa Voller, senior, and Emma Longcope, junior, spearheaded the planning of Climbapalooza, which attracted a steadily full gym of students for hours on end.
Musical guest YouJazz performed live with some members suspended in air throughout the performance.
Student DJs kept the music going after YouJazz’s performance, while the climbing never stopped. The event elicited a great turnout and was deemed successful by Longcope.
“I really enjoyed seeing people get excited and come together,” she said.
