250m, 6 pitches. Located at Urca Rock on "face oeste do Pao de Acucar" (The west face of Sugar Loaf).
Good sustained climbing on granite slabs, with small quartz crystal crimps. All pegged. The route follows Italianos before traversing left on "Vr. Darcy Ribeiro" and finishing upto the base of the cable car station on "Vr. Troglodita". A great climb, though worth taking a guide if you've not been before. Great views over rio and good exposure.
Brazilian Grade: 5 VI E2 D1 125m

βeta: A couple of wobbly flakes. Should be fine but just be aware. A bit runout in places but when it’s easier climbing. I felt it was harder than 5.9 but then we did do it in slightly wet conditions (last slab pitch was really wet which made it as slippery as ice) and I had shoes that were too big for me haha. Enjoy the views, beautiful climbing :) A route well worth doing.
