Felipe Camargo has made the first ascent of Premonição, 8c+, at Serra do Cipó, Brazil, "an amazing route on a really "Brazilian" type of limestone."
Premonição (Premonition), is basically a direct version of Poltergeist, 8b, adding a new start which links directly in to the crux of the original route, making it something like an 8A/+ boulder followed by an 8b+ route.
According to Felipe, this would mean 8c+, making it the first of the grade in the country.
