    Do you want to learn the basics of rock climbing? Then keep reading! I offer here a course including theoretical and practical classes, as well as a rock climbing outing. The theory classes will take place at Capão Raso, in Curitiba. Then the practical classes will be in Quatro Barras. Finally, we will climb at Morro do Anhangava.

    My goal is to teach you the basic technical skills to progress on climbing routes in a safe and independent way. We will also go through climbing history, ethics, leading techniques, rappelling and safety procedures. The course lasts in total 20 hours.

    It will include the following topics:
    – Introduction to rock climbing equipment (rope, harness, carabiner, quickdraw, abseiling device, sling, cord, helmet, rock climbing shoes).
    – Introduction to climbing knots (figure of eight, clove hitch, double fisherman knot, Italian hitch, overhand knot, Prusik knot).
    – Rock climbing concepts (rock climbing types, climbing grades, equalised belay station, how to belay, backing up a rappel, setting up intermediate protection, climbing ethics and environmental sustainability).

    I propose to you the following program for this 4-day course.

    Day 1
    Meeting Rua Winston Churchill 1481, Capão Raso, Curitiba, where we have the theory class. It will be split in 2 days, during 4:30 hs each day. On this first day the class begins at 6PM.

    Day 2
    Theoretical class part 2, starting at 6PM.

    Day 3

    About the Guide


    Mountain Guide from Brazil.

    I’ve been into mountaineering for the last 17 years. I guide each year climbers to the top peaks and climbing destinations in Central and South East Brazil, and also teach rock climbing courses. Besides, I’m a geographer and have a Ph.D in Geology.

    As a climber, I reached 39 +6000m peaks in the Andes! I love to lead expeditions in which I take special care of the safety, and of giving useful information to the clients. Is it about mountaineering, geology or geography, I love to teach!

    I’ve been a volunteer in many Brazilian mountaineering organizations, and I directed for some years de Brazilian Mountaineering Confederation, fighting for the free access to climbing areas that were about to be prohibited.

    So I’ll love to guide anyone who is interested in discovering mountaineering in Brazil!
