Ninhos 5.10c/d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b PG13  South America : Brazil : ... : Serra do Cipó
Ninhos (meaning bird's nests) is a classic route in the sector of the same name. It is fully overhang by a small degree with immense handholds. An exposed, unprotected 3rd degree scramble must be done to get to the first bolt and many serious accidents happened here before, so be careful!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

I know it's the "rainy season" but is it good climbing in January?

Peter, I was in the area for New Year's. It did rain but there's plenty of overhang routes you can climb, or easier ones with wet handholds. It's worth the visit.
