  • In this post I'm going to be the most possible institutional, because it was just what I was seeking when I read reviews before accepting the invitation to go up and I hope to be useful for who is also looking for information. Come on, the day chosen was of Sun and good weather, I think important comment because weather conditions will make a difference or even decide whether to give tour. (A lot of people miss the way and in many points of the dirt road the internet does not work well, so check the weather, the group that will, a meeting point and how to get there first. Remember to bring cash, ten reais for the parking lot. The place has a bar that serves snacks, tb has bathroom but is not nothing nice (stinky and without SOAP), although indispensable before the ascent, as well as stretching. Ready? The trail begins very quiet, stone steps and emerge suddenly blocks of stone is a constant climb with several times when it takes hold in cleats encrusted, hang on chains and ropes that support and engage. In a few moments arise clearings and you can already see how rose and even take breaks to rest. Remember and always rely on the common sense that some track times, especially those who split the clips on the rock to climb or descend, line, the ideal is to coordinate, ten go up, 10 down or a group for each, rose? The visual makes up for everything, beautiful, you can see the city to the countryside and suddenly everything becomes a beautifully preserved Atlantic forest coverage, your original coverage with the beginning of the range of mountains and hills that comprise the serra do mar , the famous train ride down there starting your path and in the background is the sea. Break to re-energize, rest well and have a snack. Now the descent, it is worth remembering what every climber knows, is the most vulnerable time of any climbing or hiking trail, adventure, overconfident, too scared, malpractice, rush or extreme tiredness, whatever, it's the moment where the most unforeseen events happen. So calm down, respect your time and everybody else's, if you can help and be helped by people who already know the path or give you tips along the way. Take breaks if necessary, come down with more than two and not be looking down or thinking that it won't, if not locking, if witness something not press aggressively the person, encouraging is always the best option. I take this opportunity to make some important warnings, flat soled shoes, avoid uncomfortable or get away easy. Pass sunscreen and insect repellent, take water and eat well/take before and have something to eat there at the peak, a banana for example, helps prevent cramps. Mittens help if you or your mind with scratches and also helps in time to lean on chains and ropes. But if you think all this useless, I saw people climbing slippers and drinking beer? I saw, but you are responsible for your safety and that of others? If you fall and take someone along? You're the peka of galaxies and makes pakour, climbed Everest and you think you're better than the other, so avoid full days, holidays and high season, open during the week and you don't mind. You're a lowly mortal like me? So you know ... I saw elderly, saw young children climbing or descending, feel q doesn't get to the peak, there's no shame in respect your boundaries and nature will always win when measuring strength. A lot of people are down there or in any of the clearings along the way to enjoy. But if you think that despite the effort is worth the reward and can, go! And before terminating the hint is more important, take a bag to put all the waste produced and just when you get downstairs disposal is always say that many carry backpack or go with q has pockets, not emporcalhe such a lovely place and all If you see do, attract attention and if it's more restrained wait out, collection and disposal. Cigarette butt is not disposable and cause accidents in dry weather, windy and there can start a burn, erase and throw away down there. Enjoy enough take lots of pictures, and feel proud of yourself for having done it, contemplating the will.

  • Very good for beginners, contact with nature, for first time and a little tiring on the climb, look more often.
