The Morro da Babilonia is the large face just to the south of the Pao de Acucar and Morro da Urca. The climbing is characterized generally 3-4 pitch face and slab climbing in the 5.8 to 5.10 range. The style of climbing is very typical to Rio, so if you are not comfortable with the style, the grades might seem slightly sandbagged to you. That being said, Babilonia is a good place to get a feel for the climbing in the area.
Morro da Babilonia is the large black face behind the first cable car station in the Urca area. Access is controlled by the cable car workers. To get to the wall walk to the left of the ticket box, present an ID of some sort, and pass through. It is generally open from 7 AM to 6 PM.
