    Climbing is a great source of pleasure and sensations. An activity in itself, it is also the founding basis for other areas such as ice climbing, mixed mountaineering and rocky terrain. And when you try climbing it’s hard to stop… Come discover with me les Calanques on its white limestone rocks along its most beautiful routes.

    The number of routes in Les Calanques is impressive and each has its own specificities:

    • Mythical traverse over water;
    • Great way in little equipped crack;
    • Modern route offering beautiful climbing days.

    I especially like to go rock climbing in the Calanques of Marseille because:

    • There is an environment there as there isn’t anywhere esle;
    • It is a white rock that contrasts with the blue of the sea;
    • I love the wildlife there and the smell of the South…;
    • There are climbing routes for everyone, for every level, for every wish !

    There is something for all levels from Beginner to Expert (3a to 7c) and I will define a program based on your objectives : getting the basics, become autonomous, learn the safety technics…

    Here is a small selection of climbing routes that I like very much :

    • Traversée Ramond 4a
    • L’arête de Marseille 5b
    • Traversée sans retour 5c
    • Armatta Calanqua 6c
    • La Coryphène 6b…

    Here are some other options we can do together in the south of France:

    I usually take 4 people with me, in order to maximize the safety and my attention for each climber. We can choose the dates and duration based on your wishes. We can climb at the Calanques throughout the year. If you are larger group, I will ask a colleague of mine, IFMGA certified as well, to join us.

    Contact me and let’s discuss a program that suits you. I am happy to introduce you to these exceptional places I know so well coming from that region.

    About the Guide


    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.

    The trip with Robin was awesome! I didn\'t have a car, so he provided transportation to and back from the climbing spots, which is really nice. The weather in Verdon was not good during the trip, so we ended up climbing some beautiful routes in les Calanques and Cap Canaille. Robin knows the area and the routes well, so he selected the ones that was within my ability but also felt challenging. Robin also took a lot of nice photos along the way, introduced and explained the routes/backgrounds, and helped me feel more comfortable climbing multi-pitch routes (this was my first time). I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants to experience the beauty of south of France from a couple hundreds meters up.

    The climb with Robin was amazing. We were a group of 3 and he picked us up at the bus station since we didn\'t have a car. He took us on the route de Cretes which is beautiful, and then climbed les Calanques. The day was perfect and the view was mesmerizing. At the end, he dropped us off at the city center of Cassis since we luckily had the time to visit it. I would definitely recommend the guide, who watched over us and is friendly, and the route which was so beautiful!
