/ Rock climbing in Central West Brazil - CuiabŠ, Mato Grosso
Thanks for the input!
Very tough enterprise indeed my friend! I don't think you will find anything in that area, but I might be even wrong.
There probably is some potential around "Chapada dos Guimaraes" but it's just a guess to tell you the true...I would say, if it is really important for you take all your gear and be ready for opening new routes on virgin terrain (probably crappy rock).
Please let e know if you find anything! 80)
I am a bit torn. On the one hand, taking my full and universal rack incl. a rope will give me the possibility to climb "everywhere". On the other hand, it is a huge chunk of my baggage allowance, esp. considering that I am not sure how much time I'll have + I need to find a partner. Oh well...
I will look around (google.com.br) and will let you know if I find anything. As you said, finding a partner will be also a challenge, but who knows...last year I met an italian guy in the Teodulo Hut (aparently an accomplished climber), and he was getting ready to go to that area to work in the gold mining industry, so you really never know...

Just right of Rio Verde is an obvious groove, follow this into a chimney crack. Thrash up this and move left to finish up steep grass. Ice tools recommended.Pleasnt when dry.
Unfortunately it's in Water Cum Jolly which may be a bit far if you are on a tight schedule :-)
