/ Cap Canaille, Cassis, Calanques
but have never climbed on Cap Canaille: it's the big orange (sunset) wall above Cassis
I'll be there in 3 weeks - anyone got any recommendations 5a-7a on Cap Canaille?
I'll be there with a group of sport climbers... is it reasonably solid & equipped?
Apparently completely solid despite appearances (I haven't been, but a mate has done quite a lot there). Have a look on the camptocamp sorties. Seems to be very poular this year. http://www.camptocamp.org/summits/41317/fr/cap-canaille Scroll down under the google map.
Just got back
Fabulous place, many different rock types even in the same route (sandstone, limestone, conglomerate, etc), amazing rock formations
Did 3 excellent routes on Canaille in 3 different sectors:
Bienvenue chez Damocles - outrageous rock, fine caving pitch, excellent 6c traverse on conglomerate pebbles
Bleu Comme la Mer Rouge - also amazingly varied rock, entertaining 7a+ on overhanging pebbles
Bourreur de Rousse - excellent 6a+ jug pulling up impending sandstone wall
Not my photos
