Originally, climbing was practiced by europeans mountaineers during the mountain ascents and became quickly a way to train in front of requirement of their activity.

The calanques of Marseille are known as a site that welcomed the first climbers in France. At the end of the 19th century, the group Excursionnistes Marseillais aimed to discover all the hangers of Provence and had a huge impact on the promotion of climbing in the region. However, it is Gaston Rébuffat who is the real pioneer of the discovery and the practice of climbing in the calanques of Marseille. He is one of the first to have practiced it artificially (with peg, locking biner…). Passionate, he joined the Mountainners French Club where he discovered the high mountains and met other mountaineers such as Henri Moulin or Lionel Terray also passionate and pioneers in climbing.

Climbing then became a practice in its own right and evolved thanks to ever safer equipment. The practice of climbing is varied today and allows all audiences to discover from a different angle the wonders of the natural environment that surround us!
