The North Face Climb Festival is an outdoor event presented by The North Face that aims to introduce new audiences to the world of climbing in cities across the globe.

This free public event unites climbing enthusiasts and urban explorers for a sport-meets-culture moment centered around an over-the-top climbing spectacle called Psicobloc Masters.

In Psicobloc Masters (also known as Deep Water Solo climbing), climbers race head-to-head on a 55’ high wall, on identical routes, with only deep water to break their fall.
