On these exciting half-day climbing days in Marseille, you will learn what you need to put some single-pitch skills to practice in a unique location.

Marseille boasts beautiful climbing sites, for all levels. Contemplating landscapes and disconnecting from the rest of the world makes climbing a popular form of sports meditation, and in this stunning location, it is well worth the effort. I invite you to discover this discipline. Whether you are a first-timer, a climbing enthusiast looking to advance your skills, or an advanced climber, I guarantee you an unforgettable moment in the enchanting setting of Marseille, Cassis, and La Ciotat.

About the guide

Rock Climbing Instructor

I fell in love with rock climbing in 2009. The beauty of the outdoor scenery and the challenge against gravity made me addicted to climbing. After a career as an IT engineer, I became an indoor climbing instructor in 2018. I was a coach in Paris for every type of person (beginners, competitors, kids, mountaineers mentally handicapped people, disabled people, etc). Since 2022, I have been a rock climbing instructor in the south of France. I'm really to guide people in the beautiful Calanques national park, Verdon's gorge, Orpierre, Cassis, etc. You'll like the fantastic feeling of the zipline above a blue lagoon in the via cordata "Bec de Sormiou", or climbing on the multi-pitch of the beautiful Calanques of En Vau. Please find some of my offers or contact me if you have your own project. Let's make your dream happen together!

What people are saying about Benjamin



This was our first trip to France, and we had an amazing time climbing in the Cassis area. We gave our guide some information about what kind of climbs we wanted to do and the guide found the perfect places that were exactly what we were looking for. We are experienced climbers but could not have found these places without the help of our guide. We will definitely use this service again.



It all went according to plan and our guide was great. thanks for the excellent communication and coordination. I would use your services again.
