Indoor Rock Climbing Social Event

By: Roxanne Follis

On Friday, April 26th,  ASCE OC YMF held an indoor rock climbing event at Rockreation in Costa Mesa. Many ASCE Student Members from Cal State Fullerton joined Younger Members in this fun event. Most of the attendees did not have rock climbing experience, so everyone learned together. While one member rock climbed, the rest of the group watched and guided the climber. Members were surprised at how much teamwork was required in this event. After three hours of rock climbing, everyone in the group was exhausted and ready for a break. The group of twelve headed to Karl Strauss for a happy hour to enjoy appetizers and great conversation. This was the second time ASCE OC YMF held an indoor rock climbing event and both times it has received positive feedback. It will probably become an annual event, so make sure to watch out for another event next year.
