Hard FA by Cardwell in Brazil

© Jon Cardwell

Jon Cardwell has made the FA of a roof outside of the city Belo Horizonte. The problem is in a monestary(!) above a staircase(!) on top of a massive mountain. Jon says, he's really happy to have done it and that it's hard, possibly 8B+, which would make it a contender for the hardest in the country. He hasn't decided on a name yet, but it could be House in the sky.

I'll do a bigger piece about Jon's trip to Brazil later, complete with better photos etc. Stay tuned!
