SUGITON


Sugiton is located in the heart of the Calanques. Although only a minor Calanque with a couple of tiny beaches, the dramatic scenery and acres of rock make it a prime destination. From the towering brown walls of the Paroi des Toits to the soaring ridges and faces of the Aiguille de Sugiton, there is a lot to choose from here. As ever there are many more climbs and cliffs than are described in this book, consult the local guide for more details if you are exploring this fascinating area.
