I'll be heading over to the Calanques in May with a friend, and was wondering if a single 70m will be enough for the rappels we will encounter on the multipitch routes. I purchased the vtopo guidebook, and it suggests 2 50m ropes, but if a 70m is adequate we would prefer to travel with it. Any advice?
The village Morgiou you find at the "bottom" of the fjord in the middel of the photo. The white wall above Morgiou on the right side is Cret St Michel where you find many easier multipitch routes. At the right end of the photo you see a long wall where the stone has a darker colour (the middle part of the wall). This is Paroi des Toits where you find some of the hardest overhanging routes in the Calanques. Above the village on the left side you find Les Cabanons (hidden in the photo).
