Join Maxence, an IFMGA-certified guide, on a trip to the south of France to tackle Sainte-Victoire on an unforgettable day of rock climbing.
Climb Sainte-Victoire, a renowned French massif of epic beauty.
Experience rock walls that boast numerous routes for every type of climbing.
Take advantage of guided expertise and develop your climbing skills.
The Provence region of France is a popular tourist destination. Its history and charm are sought after from worldwide travelers, and many flock to this locale just off the Mediterranean for rest, relaxation, and – most importantly – adventure. Sainte-Victoire, the daunting mountain ridge adjacent to Aix, beckons to those in the area who are after a little excitement.
The size of this massif encourages all kinds of climbers to scale its walls, and its proximity to Marseille makes it easy to access. There are single- and multi-pitch routes, and courses that accommodate both trad and sport climbers alike. It is one of the top rock locations in southern France.
Your program will take advantage of all of its assets. We will take a day to reach every nook and cranny available to us, all the while enjoying the pleasant views from our climbs. You will experience first hand the reason why Cezanne featured Sainte-Victoire in a number of his paintings.
If you are interested in a certain aspect of rock climbing, it would be my pleasure to guide you safely along the ridge to achieve your goals. I want to help you gain and hone your climbing skills, so let me know what you have in mind for your trip and I will design a program specifically for you.
This location has climbs for everyone, so this program is perfect for anyone with a passion for rock climbing and who wants to improve. With tons of rocks and ridges at our fingertips, I will give you a local experience on Sainte-Victoire that will be memorable and fun.
Book this program NOW and spend a day immersing yourself in the rock climbing culture of Saine-Victoire in southern France!
We can also try a great day traversing the Calanques! Choose between the Bora Bora traverse or the Sans Retour traverse, or just a classic climbing day above the sea at Calanque de Morgiou!

Even as a kid, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide. Growing up in Aix-en-Provence, in southern France, the Alps have been my playground since a very young age. Amazing climbing spots like the Calanques and Gorges du Verdon were just a stone throw's away from my hometown.
Eventually, I also became an architect, another long-time passion. As an architect, I lived in New York, Barcelona and Rotterdam and learned to speak fluent English and Spanish. I also met great people and had an amazing time while doing it!
I'm now back home in France and spend most of my time guiding in the Alps. I'll be happy to take you rock climbing, skiing or mountaineering to some of my favorite spots.

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!!
We had a fantastic climbing day with Max. He was fun to hang out with. He set up lots of climbs that were fun for all the abilities of our group. He made us feel safe and confident. Max’s English is perfect which meant a lot to some of us.
The trip was extraordinary! Challenging yet very rewarding. Maxence was a great guide and a perfect companion.
Max was an AMAZING guide! He was super knowledgeable and was willing to teach us new climbing techniques. Not only did I have fun climbing outdoors, but I learned how to climb better outside. I highly recommend this trip! You won´t be disappointed!
I would like to recommend Maxence for his excellent guiding on Tuesday October 9th. We had a great time, felt safe and got in a lot of climbing. He was efficient and safe as well as super friendly. I am so glad I connected with him through your service. Thank you for finding him.I would hire him again if I was coming back to Europe for more outdoors activities.

Max took us on an amazing route in the Verdon and we had a fantastic day. He also helped us refreshed our multi-pitching skills so gave us the confidence to do routes ourselves after the guided climb. Thanks!
Had a great time with Max climbing at the Calanques. He picked a good route with lots of ambiance, and did a solid job leading me up it.
Me and my dad wanted to book a last minute guided rock climb in the Calanques. We came across Maxence through explore-share and he was very kind as he changed his timetable so that he could take us out at short notice. Me and my dad were a little nervous about rock climbing and Maxence very quickly put us at ease. He was friendly and warm and very encouraging when we were on the rocks. He took us to the most beautiful spot where we were the only ones climbing, and we had an amazing view of the Calanques. He took pictures for us and sent them to us afterwards. He also provided us with all the equipment that we needed and found us suitable routes to climb for our levels. We would recommend Maxence to anyone who wants to find a climbing adventure in the Calanques.
