BEM VINDO AO MEU NOVO SITE

Apesar de estar pensando nisso já faz tempo, não foi até muito recentemente que percebi que seria uma boa ideia colocar no ar meu site próprio. Com tantas perguntas que recebo de leitores brasileiros sobre escalada em alta montanha e viagens, fazia mais do que sentido publicar meu conhecimento e deixá-lo sempre visível no web,… Read more »

WELCOME TO MY NEW PAGE

Although I thought about this for a long time, it wasn´t until I started receiving a lot of questions and feedback that it started to make sense to have it all publicized for anyone who´d want to look. So I decided to set up a webpage about my climbing and traveling, and to have it… Read more »

I HAVE A NEW IDOL

I´m a little too old to be having idols, or maybe what some people would call heroes, or maybe I´m not. But on my recent incursion into the surfing world, and add to that my current incursion into the Basque Country, I´ve came across this curious type which has got one of the most latent… Read more »

YO!

Hello climbers of the world! I am finished with my climbing in Nepal but I won’t be able to access my Google accounts on my computer until I get to Spain in about a month. That means I can’t post my trip report until then (I’m posting this from my phone). But in case you’re… Read more »

A NEW INTERVIEW!

I got interviewed for Blog de Escalada, a Brazilian portal that´s pretty democratic and covers pretty much every type of climbing activity in the country, aside from producing their own content. The interview covers really regional related topics and unfortunately we didn´t talk much about alpine climbing per se, but in any case, there´s hardly… Read more »

PARAÍSO TRAILER

Falésia Paraíso, or translated literally “Paradise Cliffs”, is one of my favorite sport climb crags in Brazil. I´ve spent countless weekends there in the past years. This is where I started leading on my own and developed myself from a top-roper to an 11 grade climber, forged many good friendships with the amazing locals, camped… Read more »

SURFING IN BETWEEN DISPATCHES

Wait! Isn´t this a climbing blog? What´s this picture doing here? The best idea of the past months was to head down to Huanchaco and get a taste of a sport I should have tried before I was even born. I left Huanchaco feeling like part of the Brazilian Storm! Just kidding! These days in… Read more »

CORDILLERA BLANCA 2014 – DISPATCH 4

Hello lazy people killing time at work! Welcome to a new dispatch! So far July has been a month of long approaches, great partnership, insomnia, World Cup and some tense moments in Parón valley.
