This route is on the north face of the Pao de Acucar. It was established in the 80s by some of the best climbers of the time. It is a mix of face, crack, and chimney climbing, and is absolutely beautiful. Very characteristic of Rio,and of the Pao de Acucar.
It is a long route, but can be done in a few hours if you are climbing well. Due to the wandering nature of the route it is best to have a topo.
North face of Pao de Acucar. After making your way through the forest look for a couple of bolts leading to a hand crack and then a huge face above.
Bring 16 draws including many 24 inch slings. You can also bring a couple of .5- 2 inch pieces to fill in some of the gaps between bolts.
