Ebba and Karin, two Swedish friends contacted me recently in order to make their first multi-pitch route in the Calanques. They already had a little climbing experience, especially indoors. The main objective was to make the famous stop from Marseille to La Candelle, but given the bad weather and the rain forecast for the afternoon, we fell back on a shorter route.
We decided to go to the cliff of Crêt St Michel, accessible in about twenty minutes from Luminy. This wall has the advantage of offering a large number of affordable routes on a very compact rock sheltered from the east wind.
We climbed the route called "La Chaloupée" 5c max in 4 pitches. And it didn't take more! We took the shower at the end of the last pitch, the timing was perfect!
