the Calanques, located near Marseille, France, are a beautiful area for climbing and other outdoor activities.
Climbing is practiced in the Calanques since the late 1800's.

Recently a national park project puts a great danger on access.
40% of the climbing sectors fall into a possible "integral reserve" where no human access would be allowed, exept for scientific purposes.
on the contrary, there is danger that the remaining areas will see an increased touristic pressure.

The project also ignores that climbers and hikers have had a fundamental role as activists against new roads and buildings in the area, throughout all the XXth century.

Please sign the following petition to preserve full access for climbers and hikers, thank you

Thanks! There's so much climbing potential in Europe but so much places where it's simply not allowed, all help to keep the places we have open to acces is great!
