While at CIRM for Bayes for Good and Big Bayes workshops, I went again climbing with Nicolas, a guide from Cassis. As we had picked a day when the mistral (a local Northeasterner) was high and made climbing unpleasant and freezing, Nicolas picked a domain on the `other’ side, that was completely protected and started from the sea and went up in the sun, the wind only hitting us at the top, after six pitches, most of which I managed to lead.

We proceeded fast enough to get down for a second route, just as pleasant, finishing at the top as the Sun was setting down behind the islands below us. A well-chosen set of levels (5b, 5c) and rock-types like slab for my level and a nice conslusion to three climbing outings within a month. (Note that most pictures of our route are not mine as my camera battery went down before we even started.)
