From Marseille, France
Jun 24, 2013
People were helpful here when I asked about climbing near Marseille, and a lot of people mentioned Corsica as a good climbing place for France in that thread, so I thought I'd ask for more specific details here:
Are there any places that would be acceptable to climb in August in Corsica? I'm going there for work (near Cap Corse) for all of July and have a week in August to explore (I know, the most crowded/hot time for Corsica, but it's how it worked out). A climber friend is meeting me and we'd be interested in maybe a bit of climbing (easy trad, sport, deep water soloing) in between hiking/sitting on the beach/siteseeing/etc. Any recommendations?
Also anything that is not to miss in Corsica? Climbing or otherwise? (best beaches, maybe?).
(I'm planning to ask these questions on the French website Camp2Camp, as well).
