More Info

Cassis is ideally situated for all sorts of incredible rock climbing adventures.

Just outside of the scenic seaside resort town are the Cap Canaille, the highest seaside cliff in all of France. Boasting great views out over the Mediterranean, the cap offers plenty of high-quality options to climb. Composed of pristine, ochre-coloured sandstone, it is a true pleasure to climb for intermediate-level participants.

A bit farther afield, Mercantour National Park is also home to some excellent rock climbing opportunities. At 3,143 meters in elevation, Cime du Gélas is an especially popular destination for climbing enthusiasts. The third highest peak in the Maritime Alps offers plenty of incredible views from its lofty summit.

Maxence was absolutely great! Super friendly and knowledgeable. With very little back and forth he was able to plan a perfect climbing day trip for us, including our first multi-pitch climb (and all of this was actually a backup plan, since the area we were going climbing was closed due to high winds). I look forward to going climbing again in Calanque and would not hesitate to book him again!!

Andre was simply amazing! His communication was excellent. He customized our trip exactly to our specifications. His climbing and guiding skills are elite! The climbing in Les Calanques is out of this world! I have never seen anything so beautiful while climbing! I hope that I have the chance to go back one day. If I do, I will definitely seek out Andre again! He made the trip spectacular! I definitely recommend Andre and climbing in Les Calanques!
