Stretching from Marseille to the town of Cassis, Les Calanques is one of France’s largest rock climbing areas. This 12-mile cliff band offers a true paradise for adventure lovers: over 3000 routes right above the vast French Mediterranean Sea. 

My plan is to get you to the best spots to learn basic rock climbing skills or improve them to become autonomous. The popular Calanque d’En Vau  is characterized by its walls of cliffs. Its climbing lines are bolted and easy to climb. Traversée Ramond, located in Castelviei, is a route without special technical difficulties, standing 100 m above sea level. Another option is the Arête de Marseille, a super-classic route of Les Calanques, first climbed in 1927.

Rock climbing on these limestone sea cliffs is unique. The white rock contrasts with the blue of the Mediterranean Sea and offers an amazing landscape. You will discover both beautiful climbing spots and gorgeous views.

So, if you are up for this climbing adventure in Les Calanques, please contact  me! I’ll be glad to guide you in this area that I know so well.

If you are more than 4 people, I will ask a IFMGA certified collegaue to join us.



About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in 1990 and I am based in Toulon. I am a high mountain guide and photographer. I started loving climbing during my youth, and I later discovered alpinism. This took me to visit many paths in the Alps, as well as expeditions. At the same time, I became a high mountain guide when I was 24 because I loved it and wanted to share my passion.
I like to travel and I offer my services in the French massifs (Mercantour, Hautes Alpes, Chamonix) and abroad (Switzerland, Italy) all year long. I will do my best to enrich your journey with my experience and to guide you to reach you dream summit.
