Featured Route For Montreal Area
Base of Shiska Bob, last route before the free standing pillar (seen as dark lump mid-upper right). Start between the birch and fir trees following obvious line of bolts.

Shish Kebob 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  North America : Canada : ... : Bob's Wall
The farthest route right. Starts a few meters left of the pine tree and follow a right arching line of tightly spaced bolts. The last moves are the crux but the very top is a bucket. This route was really spicy before the broken pine limbs were trimmed. Expect lots of traffic on weekends....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
