Hi Everyone, I was wondering if there were any guides/topos/cliffs in the Calanques region.
I can't find anything on the web, does anyone have suggestions?

I don't know of any DWS topos for the Calanques - locals with boats make up their own lines... However this DWS video was shot at a well known site near the calanque de figureolle between cassis and la ciotat

Traverse of the western wall of the harbour at Cassis. Excellent fun...

In reply to tk: thanks tk, I'll have a look at that. By the way, do you know of any access restrictions on the calanques in August. I read somewhere that there are some to stop forest fires

As far as I know, you cannot drive down into Sormiou nor Morgiou from mid June to mid September, but it depends on the fire risk

For Sormiou, it would be over an hours hot walk from the fire barrier

For Morgiou, park at Luminy university and walk from there

In reply to Severin: I think the pink guide book has some DWS routes in it. The blue one doesn't. A fun diversion is the right wall off the beach (looking out) of En Vau. See how far you can traverse before ending up swimming. Really fun.

In reply to ChrisBrooke: The pink one is the Vtopo one by the way. Rather than the blue FFME one.
