What you'll do

Please, read the description carefully:

This experience is for people with experience in sport climbing and/or multi-pitch climbing. If you fit on this profile, this is the best way to get in touch with the real climbing community in Rio! I will choose the best rock wall that suits your level and preferences, and we will go there to have a nice morning of pure rock climbing. This is perfect for anyone who is a climber visiting Rio but doesn't know any climbing spots or other climbers to show you the routes or give you the best "betas". I'm here to be your climbing partner.

Let's go and climb some nice routes!

Obs.1: Check the forecast before booking.

Obs.2: If you want to climb MULTI-PITCH routes, let me know in advance before booking.

Obs.3: If you are a group bigger than 2 people, send me a message! :)
Other things to note
The participants must have a reasonable sport climbing experience. It is even better if you climb at least 6c (french grade) or 5.11b (USA grade). Also, it is mandatory to bring your personal climbing shoes (your personal harness is also welcome).

Born in the city of Rio de Janeiro, I am a geologist who is passionate about trips and outdoor activities. I have been a climber for 15 years and eventually became a climbing guide certified by the Association of Guides, Instructors, and Climbing Professionals of the State of Rio de Janeiro (AGUIPERJ). Also, I have WAFA training. Climbing is a way of life and a profession, and I love to share this experience with anyone who loves to be outdoors!

Where you'll be

First, we will talk and I will get an idea of your climbing level and your style preferences. Then I'll choose the best crag that suits you. We will meet where it suits best according to where we are going. Then we will go sport climbing. You can choose either a sport climbing short wall or easy to modearte multi-pitch routes, among many others.

The experience of sport climbing with Gabriel was just perfect. He knows everything about sport climbing in Rio and is a very strong climber himself. He customized the experience to my level of climbing, made me feel safe and gave me incentive when necessary. I feel I learned more about climbing in these 4 hours than in the last 6 months I practiced!

Gabriel is a great guy! He was very transparent about the planning and did his best to make our climbing trip comfortable for me. Highly recommended.

Climbing with Gabriel in Rio was one of the highlights of a five-month trip. I hadn't been able to climb for several months so he took me to a very easy route where I could refresh my memory of multi-pitch climbing and rapelling. He is an expert guide, very knowledgeable and safety conscious but also fun and friendly. I was hoping to climb the Italian Route while in Rio and having seen me climb Gabriel said he thought I could do it. It was carnival and he had a very busy schedule but he made time to meet me for the climb, which was an incredible experience. It took four hours to climb the seven pitches to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain and Gabriel was encouraging and patient all the way. He also took some great photos, which are wonderful souvenirs of the climb. I will definitely climb with him again if I come back to Rio and in fact I'm already planning when I can make that happen!

Gabriel is very friendly, makes us feel free, except that we get to places that are little known. Well worth it. Thank you for the cordiality of the failure I had. Very thanks
