Ready to Join?

If the weather is ok, I'll be out there in any case... you are welcome to join me...
Date can be changed, to saturday or monday.

Two options:
-> Calanque de Devenson, trail along the sea cliffs
On the 11th we finally didn't take this route, climbing instead through the "Val Vierge" and the "Cheminée du Diable". The trail along the sea cliffs branches off after the passage with the chains (photos 6, 7, hike march 11th). Some passages are a bit tricky, but if you did some hiking before you'll manage it easily. Another chain (almost horizontally) waits at the "Couloir Devenson". Technically it's not difficult at all, just don't look down :)
I can bring a harness and a rope, if someone prefers to be on the safe side. After the Couloir it's scrambling up another Protected content approximately, then a few more meters of walking, and you can enjoy the gorgeous views over the Calanque de Devenson.

-> An alternative "light" could be to make again the "Val Vierge", but to take then a trail towards the "Cheminée du CAF". I've never done that before, might involve some climbing at the end. If it's too difficult, we just turn around and continue through the "Cheminée du Diable" to access the plateau. Then we can walk either to the "Calanque de Devenson" or somewhere else... there are plenty of alternatives...

Contact me if you have any questions or suggestions...
