Urban bouldering in Montreal

The climbing wall company OnSite has moved 3 massive granite boulders with over 20 problems to the center of Montreal. Urbain bouldering in Montreal is not at its beginnings, but this new innovative development is bold and promising. Montreal Buildering History Distance from the crags incited many generation of Montreal climbers to boulder on urban installations. Before the first indoor facilities of Quebec, some climbers from Montreal have reported starting on the sport on building. First publication of that discipline was in 2008 with the parution of Antoine Seguin’s documentary Dist-urban Behaviour.

A few years later, the Bourassa-Moreau brother realized a series of buildering videos. Originally designed for a high school project, their videos went viral on the internet and got a total of over 15 millions of views on Vimeo and Facebook. Vidéo B Bro prod
