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.
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.
