The Tour de Bloc was established in 2003 with the aim of promoting competitive climbing in canada through a structured bouldering circuit.

The Tour started out as a regional based series with competitions in Ontario and Quebec and has now grown into a full national circuit, with stops from Atlantic to Western Canada.

With the support of the climbing community, gym owners and our sponsors the Tour de Bloc continues to grow every season.
