Montreal is the largest city in Quebec, one of the largest in Canada.
Great destination for enjoying tons of festivals (Jazz, Just for Laugh) the Grand Prix and much more!

You can bring your climbing shoes to Allez-Up! where Marc d'Hostie will pick them every tuesday and return them the next week. Great job, call him up if you want anything special (514) 257-7628.

For Hiking / Climbing boots you have Carinthia, He's a La Sportiva Authorized Cobbler.

40 foot Smurf 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  North America : Canada : ... : Main Wall
This is the beautiful face. Slightly overhanging at it's top with good holds. Climb up to stance above first bolt, then finesse your way right through the right leaning ramp/corner. Back left to a good stance above second bolt. Straight up the clean rock on positive holds to anchor. This route is 4 stars if you avoid all the big but ugly holds on left. If you climb left the grade goes down a bit and the quality a lot. Try to take the most aesthetic line possible and you will be rewarded....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
