      The Romans displayed the Mediterranean Sea as the center of their world. If we do so, we could realise that there are plenty rock climbing areas all around. Climbing over "La Grande Bleue" (the big blue) remains an exceptional experience. Blue all around, some sailboats and others fishing boats, the only horizon in sight, the wind, the smell of sea spray and the opportunity to finish beautiful climbing days basking in the sea: a paradise for climbers!

     This is the credo of Eric Alamichel, author of the guidebook "Faces à la mer" released in 2014. It presents more than 110 routes selected to spend quality holidays in the following countries Turkey, Italy, Greece, Malta, Spain, France and Croatia. Some routes are from well known rock climbing areas (Calanques, Kalymnos, Corsica, Mallorca, Sardinia, ...) and others are located in hidden secret gardens in the many corners of the Mediterranean.


Geyikbayiri, Paklenica, Muzzeronne, Gaeta, Olympos, Cap Canaille, île de Symi, Peñón de Ifach, Oltre Finale, Crète, Sicily or Ibiza, many evocative names where the magnificent routes from 4 to 7a described in this book await you for your next vacation :)


The guidebook is on sale in all good specialized bookshops and here on the internet.
