Altissimo Marseille is a climbing gym belonging to a network of 10 sites in France, launched in 2011 under the leadership of the former world champions Jibé Tribout and Hervé Laillé, with the goal of opening 7 days a week and being accessible to all, whatever your level or profile.

Set in a former foundry, the room is very spacious, allowing the deployment of 180 routes for a maximum height of 16m.

Even if the space has a small bouldering wall, climbing is essentially on ropes, covering all difficulties from very easy (3+) to very difficult (8c), with the majority of routes being around 6a / 6b. The whole is carefully managed by an enthusiast team who is committed to creating a new path every day.

A wide space on the mezzanine is dedicated to beginners who want to learn gradually. The sections of wall are not over 7m, and some parts, little inclined, are also perfect for children.

Those wishing to be mentored will benefit from tutoring by members of the team, just as happy to give good advice and the desire to go further. If this is the case, then you can join the climbing schools that offer training sessions each week.

The experienced climbers will find a wide variety of routes to practice, a multitude of inclinations and modules to work its technique, power or endurance. Apart from Wednesday which is the most crowded evening, you will have the opportunity to choose your routes and to repeat them if necessary.

The most experienced climbers will practice their talents in the space dedicated to the lead climbing on a heavily overhanging wall, offering 22m long routes.

The Altissimo network is known for its openness to all audiences (children, senior, groups) and its attention to safety. However, the Marseille section has developed its own identity by going further on certain public and events. These include the 'Défi Grimpe' devoted to people with physical or mental disabilities. Or speed contests, demonstrations slackline, the famous summer barbecues ... All of which make this climbing gym a place to live where the conviviality and sharing of common values prevail!
