New Mississauga Bouldering Gym is Up The Bloc

Few people in Canada have more experience with indoor bouldering than Luigi Montilla (Tour de Bloc, Friction, Bouldering Canada) and Jean-Marc de la Plante (Allez Up Climbing, Seven Bays Bouldering) and they are teaming up for a new gym. It will be called Up The Bloc and will be opening in Mississauga this fall. Watch a 2014 interview with Montilla about the World Cup.

The announcement said, “Opening this fall 2016, Up The Bloc will feature 11,000-square-feet of finely crafted bouldering circuits, designed to deliver the very best climbing experience. We want to support and inspire climbers of all levels to love the sport as much as we do.” Follow them on Facebook here.
