DescriptionThis is the most famous route on the Pao de Acucar. It is on the west face of the formation and climbs up directly underneath the cable car. It is mostly easy but technical face and slab climbing in a beautiful setting. Second half of the first pitch can be tricky for someone not so used to face climbs.
There is a new finish on a beautiful bolted line aside the ferrata. See the Urca guide update "CEPI-em-Livre" on
Continue straight up from P3 of Via dos Italianos. For more details consult the excellent topos in the Urca Climbing Guide.
