DescriptionThis route is on the north face of the Pao de Acucar. It was established in the 80s by some of the best climbers of the time. It is a mix of face, crack, and chimney climbing, and is absolutely beautiful. Very characteristic of Rio,and of the Pao de Acucar.
It is a long route, but can be done in a few hours if you are climbing well. Due to the wandering nature of the route it is best to have a topo.
