World-Class and very popular limestone sport venue. There are three climbing areas (massive outcrops in the middle of the savannah landscape) called Group 1, Group 2 and Group 3. The most popular sectors are in Group 1, home of the famous Sala da Justiça with some of the classic and most beautiful long and sustained routes of Serra do Cipó. The guidebook was released in 2015 but new routes have been added and a whole new sector, Rockmaster, was also developed after the guidebook was published.
Brazil has its own climbing grades, somewhat similar to the French grading system, which is used on this page.
There is also an outstanding bouldering area nearby called Conceição do Mato Dentro that it is worth checking. Ask the locals!
