As you approach the Big Rock from the south, this is that left-of-crack section most likely to catch your eye. A cool-looking projection shaped roughly like South America creates the foundation for one of this boulder's most adventurous problems. Despite its low grade (due to a simpler top out) you're likely to spend at least one or two minutes puzzling over the start. The arete at right is off route. Sit directly beneath Brazil and use the flat, vertical jug lowest to the ground as your liftoff hold. Move immediately left from the start, gripping any part of South America (besides the arete) for handholds, including the deep pocket right above Chile [watch out for bees?]. Go right onto the map and top out slightly left of the start. That's Viva Brasil!
