Blakey: Thanks for linking the article by Bernard Vaucher.

Bernard Vaucher has also written the climbing history of the Calanques. Here is a link to a web-site where the book can be bought at the favorable price of 27 Euros: http://www.priceminister.com/offer/buy/1890400/Vaucher-Bernard-Des-Rochers-Et-Des-Hommes-120-Ans-D-escalade-Dans-Les-Calanques-Livre.html

Good-feel walking in the Calanques. An heroic effort by the old lady.

Anyone interested in climbing at les Calanques this June? I want to go, but need a partner / leader.

Is June a good time to be there? Not too hot?

The Tour just passed through Marseille, and any climber had to have checked out the crags along the route. At least I did.

Wow Marlow thanks for posting all this cool info!
I had an art residency in Cassis for three months in the autumn 16 years ago so I brought my rack with me [one of the best (and free) digs I've ever had: duplex and terrace on the water at the harbor inlet across from the lighthouse, small secluded topless beach below, emerald green water]. My experience was that the Calanques wasn't an easy place to find a partner. My time there was spent hiking or solo top roping.
It's a stunning area. The view from the rock down into the inlets were full value and btw, completely on topic for a climbing related boob thread!
I'm gonna dig into all the cool stuff you posted.

Three months in Cassis in the autumn 16 years ago must have been a dream. I have never lived in Cassis, but I have climbed most of the routes at Dalle de Port Miou Vallon.
