Description

O Frade e a Freira (the Friar and the Nun) is one of the state's postcards as one of the most beaufitul formations of Espirito Santo.
The first route was established back in 1948 by a bold party from Rio de Janeiro, reaching the Nun's summit through a chimney system in the southwest face (chaminé Amâncio Silva).
The Friar's summit is a very popular climb through an easy slab and a small aid to reach the top. It's a nice place to bivouac due to its easy access.
Climbing the Nun in the other hand, require a full day of climbing with planned logistics.
Today (2018) there are about 5 routes in all massif.
Great views from the mountains to the ocean from both summits.
There's a hotel close to the base called Chalés do Frade.

Getting There

From Vitoria, take BR-101 south directions to Cachoeiro de Itapemirim. 2 hour drive (120km).
Just before the first exit to Cachoeiro de Itapemirim, exit right to a dirtroad up the mountain (follow signs to Chales do Frade).
Take left before the entrance to Chalés do Frade to a dead end where you can park. The trailhead is a bit before the turnaround.
From here 5 min hike to the base of the Frade's (Friar's) main slab.
This is the main access through the Frade (Friar). Some routes may have a different approach.
