Psicobloc is a competition that involves solo climbing over a deep body of water. It is a competition open to everyone, and this year it will be held in Canada for the second time at the Aquatic Complex.
During the two-day event climbers will be required to show their speed, agility and endurance as they climb the inverse wall which is more than 16 metres high (55 feet). Without a rope, equipment or any other protective system, the competitors' climb will end with a playful plunge into the diving pool.
Participants will share in $30,000 worth of prize money.
There will also be music, exhibitors and activities for all at the event.

Getting to Aquatic Complex
Jean-Drapeau Subway Station
The Jean-Drapeau subway station is located in the heart of Parc Jean-Drapeau. To get to the Parc easily and quickly, the subway is still the best way to go!
During the summer season, Parc Jean-Drapeau visitors can use the river shuttle as a means of transportation, from the Vieux-Port de Montréal (Jacques-Cartier pier) and the city of Longueuil.
Users can also bring along their bikes and they have access to a network of cycling paths at each stop.
Covid-19 - The river shuttle service will not be operational for the 2021 summer season.
Two STM shuttles provide a connection between the Jean-Drapeau subway station and various attractions.
777: Every day of the year, the 777 shuttle provides fast access to the Casino de Montréal.
