Come and learn or improve your climbing skills in one of the most beautiful places to practice this activity: the Calanques of Marseille, Cassis or La Ciotat.

Indeed, the National Park of the Calanques offers many different sites and cliffs: Calanques of Sormiou, Morgiou, Luminy, Port Miou, Goudes rock, etc.

And thanks to the diversity of these climbing sites, it is always possible to propose you sectors and routes adapted to your physical and technical level, from beginner to expert. Above all, it is possible to climb in the warmth, protected from the Mistral wind even in the middle of winter.

Specialist of climbing in Provence with more than 35 years of practice and more than 25 years of professional coaching, I am a passionate and a lover of the Calanques and Provence and I will do my best to meet your expectations.
