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.
