Rio city is known to be the largest urban rock climbing mecca in the world. There are over 800 multi-pitch routes right in town. The city is surrounded by over 50 metamorphic/granitic rock structures 3-10 pitches tall.

There is a wide variety of aesthetic climbing routes nestled in the Serra dos Orgãos National Park and Three Peaks State Park. Both parks are located within about 115.000 acres of dense tropical forest and at an elevation ranging from 4000-7500 feet.

Here you have over 25 majestic buttresses to choose from. And routes range from 3-19 pitches of 5.6-5.13 and loads of aid routes.

The views from most of these climbs are amazing. You're either climbing right in middle of a pristine Atlantic forest or right above the tropical waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
