Felipe Camargo has finished off an old project at São Bento, that he tried when Jon Cardwell came to Brazil in 2010.
Just had the chance to try it again now... It is only three moves long, but in a roof and the first move is really really hard off of a bad heel hook and a smear toe hook against the roof.
It took me two days this year to be able to stick the first move and send, plus a day 2010 with Jon.
I think the grade should be something around 8B or 8B+...but I'm just gonna leave it 8B till the next people send and see what they think.
This as well as the routes I've been doing this year will all be featured in a free video I'm making, with only first ascents all around Brazil. Should be out in early December on vimeo.
