Approach

When you come from the land towards the sea, Grande Aiguille is on your left. You can get there by climbing up the left side when facing the needle from the road.

Ethic inherited from France

Park where indicated, take care of the environment, buy the local guidebook when possible (this is one of the ways you can help local route setters), clean up your shoes before climbing, don't spray beta, be polite.

This bilingual English/French guidebook is the digital version of the guidebook Climbing in the Calanques edited by the CT FFME Bouches-du-Rhône (the local branch of the French climbing federation)
It presents a large selection of climbing routes in the Calanques including sports crags and many sectors of multi-pitch routes. It was designed respecting several criteria: provide a description of the Calanques that is as thorough as possible, meet climbers’ expectations and preferences, and arouse interest in all types of climbing. The routes are drawn on photos, the accesses are described precisely and are illustrated with maps. Finally, for each cliff, approach time is indicated as well as the length of rope required, aspect, number of routes, the average difficulty, and the range of grades. This guidebook is published by the CT FFME of the Bouches du Rhône. It participates directly to the maintenance of the crags in the region.
The content of the guidebook is detailed in the OmegaRoc app.
