La Saphir*** 5a
[La Saphir- Calanques- a great place, 3 kb]150m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic up the long ridge gives Alpine-style climbing by the seaside. It can make a great end to a long day if you walk back home along the plateau at the top. Start up the polished wall in the gap behind the Petite Aiguille. Continue along the ridge in 1 or 2 pitches to a belay on a block below the upper wall. Take the well-climbed line up this in 2 or 3 pitches. © ROCKFAX

A great adventure with a sunny start turning to dusk, then dark with rain, wind and lightning before a hike out in the dark.

Climbed this again after a late start and failure to find any fixed gear on or the line of Le Pouce Normal. Topped out with a gorgeous sunset.

Great climb and well protected except the ridge which has nothing but natural protection but very simple.
