In the heart of the Bouches-du-Rhône department, the Sainte-Victoire mountain rises majestically above Aix-en-Provence. It is world famous for having been the favorite model of the painter Cézanne who immortalized it on more than 80 paintings.

I propose you to discover it through various climbing routes with difficulty adapted to your level. Indeed, the Sainte-Victoire has this exceptional feature that it offers you on the south face up to 400 meters of vertical drop for very accessible routes interspersed with small terraces. This creates a superb atmosphere and allows you to enjoy superb panoramas on Provence.

Here are some ideas of multi pitch climbing routes perfect for a vertical walk on the limestone of the Sainte-Victoire:

  • The Aix ridge at Baou Cézanne.
  • "Les moussaillons" and the "arête du jardin" which arrives at the Croix de Provence.
  • The southwest ridge or the complete south ridge of the Croix.
  • "Les masques de pierre" or "Les aromates" at Aiguille Bertine.
  • "Le grand parcours".
  • "L'éperon de la Vierge".
  • "L'arête des trois pointes" at Subéroque.
  • "L'arête du grand couloir".
  • The ridge of Genty.
  • The spur of the Hermitage.

If you like the experience, I can also offer you the chance to climb some multi pitch routes in Buis-les-Baronnies, a little further north in the Drôme of Provence.

In case climbing a multi pitch route makes you want to evolve and progress in your  practice and if you have blockages, why not follow this course in the Baronnies to learn to climb more serenely, to manage falls and to know your limits...
