The mountain on the descent via the cable car.

Description 

This is the most famous route on the Pao de Acucar. It is on the west face of the formation and climbs up directly underneath the cable car. It is mostly easy but technical face and slab climbing in a beautiful setting. Second half of the first pitch can be tricky for someone not so used to face climbs.


Location 

From the paved trail along the base of Pao de Acucar, take an obvious trail to the shoulder between the Urca and the Pao de Acucar, then head directly to the face of Pao de Acucar.


Protection 

14 draws, including several 24 inch runners.
