It includes Coquetel de Energia extension, the first 8c+ in the country, a route near Rio de Janeiro that Felipe managed to make the first ascent of recently.
It's an extension to an existing 8b+ route, adding a Font 7C boulder section after the original route.

Felipe had to climb it at night, by headlamp, to avoid the heat.

The main goal of the film is to just show a little bit of what Brazil has to offer to the international climbing community. The film will be released soon, for free on youtube!
