Title in french : Grimper dans les calanques avec Pierre Clarac

Type : guide

City : Marseille

Pierre Clarac is a climbing instructor with a formidable knowledge of the Calanques and an experience of over 20 years, the perfect guide to take its first steps in cliff or to make the most beautiful multi-pitch routes.

For 35 years, the one we call Pierrot spends his time in the Calanques. He started to climb at a time when most of the cliffs were still virgins. Accompanying the development of sport climbing, he opened many routes and equiped a variety of sectors. We owe him some famous multi-pitch as Armata Calanca or Gutenberg at the base of the Candelle, and the equipment of some very popular sectors: La Parfumerie, Le Prado, Les Escampons... He is also co-author of federal topo of the Calanques.

The playground is perfectly mastered and that knowledge is a key strength for our guide. His expertise allows him to select the best sites considering the weather, the crowd and your level. He can change his performances by thousand variants, by accessing the cliff by one side and come back by an another one, by slightly deflecting a way to enjoy a beautiful technical passage.

But above all, this graduate of the State suits all your desires and your abilities. You never climbed? Pierre takes you for a walk on air paths or ledges closest to the sea. You want more technical? You embark on routes with Via Cordata and zip lines. Want to learn to climb? You will spend the day on small cliff and will benefit from his advice. You want to push your limits? You will leave for the most spectacular multi-pitch.

As a professional, his first task is to put you in confidence, help you with your fears. For him, climbing is not a sport, but first a philosophy of life, an outdoor activity that involves joy, lightness, serenity. The most important thing is to be truely yourself in your report to the void and the elements.

Before becoming a monitor, our man spent ten years as an educator. Suffice to say that the human and exchange take a prominent place in his practice and he is well aware of the therapeutic role of climbing. He often works with the toughest audiences: children with disabilities, obese people, the homeless...

Pierre Clarac says himself: "The Calanques, this is my office," and he receives everybody. His best client, for 15 years, is a lady of 70 years that engages him every week. Climbing, a story of loyalty? Perhaps, but certainly a question of modesty. Just like the climbing stars that were Edlinger or Berhault and with whom he has had many opportunities to be roped...
