The Spot’s 2015 Psychedelia is almost here! This year we’re going all out with our Dr. Seuss theme, and we can’t wait to see what crazy Seussian costumes you all come up with.

This glow-in-the-dark, blacklight event is well-known as one of the biggest and best indoor climbing events around! Hundreds of climbers dress up for our party/bouldering comp filled with wild decor and twisted problems with all manner of special features. We’ve done trampolines, rope swings, slides, hanging toxic waste barrels… who knows what we’ll come up with this year? With fire dancers, tape art from local artists, a huge raffle, beer, food, a legendary costume contest, and much more, this is not your traditional comp!

And join our Facebook event for the latest updates!

This year’s Psychedelia is presented by LaSportiva and Nite Ize! We will have great prizes for the best dressed guy and girl in each session!

Still costume planning? Read these great tips and tricks for your Psychedelia costume by our head route setter Jackie Hueftle.
