Jump to: navigation, search

Night at the Climb In, led by Dustin Weatherford, was a tower of junk cars skewered on a steel pole which participants could climb up, ultimately finding themselves in either a RV trailer or a crows nest (depending on how brave they were). Many builders expected the piece to close early in event week to the possibility of injury, and indeed the piece was closed before Wednesday.[1]

  • Max climbing height: 60'
