/ Trad Climbing in Les Calanques
years. There were no bolted routes in those days, but I remember there were
plenty of superb trad routes of severe grade and upwards, to HVS and above. I'm sure there will be up to date guidebooks available by now.I'm sure you will have a great time. try En Vau.
If you're going for multipitch check out Devenson. Some trad there, too. I did a trip there two years ago in December and it was fantastic.
Some pics here:
En Vau has good trad routes in a great setting. We went there last March. In terms of car security we parked at Col de Gardiole and it was safe with a park ranger there all day it seemed- as described in the rock fax guide for cote d'azur p90. We did la saphir and serene liautard and both were great and in a unique position above the turquoise waters.
