En Vau...follow the turquoise.
One of the earliest areas to be explored, En Vau provides a beautiful and secluded (except for the tourist boats) climbing experience. Tucked away in a small valley near Port Miou, En Vau offers a variety routes just above a private beach with turquoise water. The most prominent features include Petite Aiguille and Super Sirene. Super Sirene may have been the first 5.10 in Les Calanques, put up by Paul Guerin and Gaston Rebuffet in 1941. The routes here are sandbagged and very polished after 70+ years of travel. A worthy venture.
From Port Miou, enjoy the pleasent hike for about 45 minutes which filters you to the base of Petit Aiguille.

Since there are at least 16 separate areas to climb in En Vau, suggest adding/breaking "Petite Aiguille" into its own "area" and putting the route listed under that area. That way, folks can add Saphir, Sirene, ect and it would be a bit easier to navigate this fine area. Thanks for adding En Vau!
