In southeastern Brazil, the Serra do Mar mountain range is a fantastic destination for rock climbing. In particular, Salinas, the highest point of the range (2320m) offers some great routes. Salinas has three main summits: Pico Maior (Higher Peak), Pico Médio (Medium Peak) and Capacete (Helmet).
The climbing routes in Salinas are very committing. Some of them are higher than 1000m! Also, they have their own style of protection. From here you will discover some of the most impressive views in Brazil. The very prominent peaks are a unique scenario for long sports and trad climbing.
We can easily reach the Salinas massif from different cities. In this case, we will leave from Rio.
We can take for example one of these routes:
– Via Leste: 4° V (6+/A0) 700m, the longest and most classic route to the summit (10 hs)
– No Mundo da Lua: 5° V+ E3 400m (5-6 hs)
– CERJ: 5° A0 400m – R$ 500m (6-8 hs)
– Sólidas Ilusões: 4°-V E3 500m (6-8 hs)
– Roberta Groba: 5°-VI 500m (6-8 hs)
– El Cabong: 5°-Vl E2 500m (6-8 hs)
I propose to you the following 2-day itinerary.
Day 1: Rio – Salinas
We meet, check the equipment, then buy some food and drive to the mountain!
Day 2: Climbing at Pico Maior or Capacete
Early morning! We leave before sunrise to get to the base of the rock with the first lights. A fun and intense climbing day awaits in our chosen route. At the end of the day, drive back to Rio.
