One of the great multi-pitch classics in the Massif des Calanques. A superb line at a very approachable difficulty. It was immortalized by a famous picture of Gaston Rebuffat as he jumps from one pillar to the other, a memorable step at the end of the second pitch.

Approach is from Luminy, via a 1h20min walk on the wide track to Sugiton then take the GR left to the Socle de la Candelle.
