I will arrive in the next few days. Has anyone used a guide they would recommend . I have all my own sport gear but time will be a bit short.

Also any great routes. Grades about 6a. I am a bit short on fitness.

I climbed with a few guides from www.climbinrio.com they were all good. 

Voie des Italiens on the Sugar Loaf is very good fun; slabby 6a.

K2 on Corcovado is nice too and a bit easier.

If you have a bit more time the Dedo de Deus is well worth a visit.

Have not been to Brazil but have been researching the climbing there for a while (which obviously makes me an expert...).  These guys publish some nice guidebooks (incl. a classics climbs of Brazil-type one) and advertise guiding services:

Would be curious to hear who you end up going with.
