Near La Ciotat, in a massif made of a pebble conglomerate called poudingues, a small area is very well suited to bouldering. This climbing few meters above the water becomes pure happiness during the hottest summer days.

Everything starts on the left bank of the beautiful Figuerolles creek for a 50m fairly constant length around the 5a/5b level.
Only one passage in 5c/6a is more difficult, but it is generally a really good excuse to have a bath.
Nevertheless mind the young people who keep jumping all around.

The following part is easier (between 3b and 5c according to the route) except at the entrance of the Trou du diable (hole of the devil) which includes an exposed passage in 6c.

After crossing this obstable (why not by swimming), you arrive at the famous bouldering site called Anse du Gaméou. Although the crossing does not exceed 6a, most of the single pitches will ask for many more capabilities, from 7b to 8b. Only a few lines at the right end a
