The film was produced by Morfina Filmes and directed by Gabriel Tarso, and was in the running for best film in the Rio Mountain Film Festival. It… Read more »

VIDEOS DE ESCALADA – MEUS PREFERIDOS DE 2014

Nós escaladores normalmente somos loucos por vídeos de escalada. Bom, pelo menos 99% dos escaladores que eu conheço.

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.

“NOT ALL WHO WANDER ARE LOST”

There´s a saying that goes “if you don´t know where to go, just stay where you are”. I´d like to think, if you don´t know where to go after the climbing season is over, watch this: 35 from ARC’TERYX on Vimeo. Not that you´ll have any answers though, but it´s a great video. 😉

MY 33

So here I am in the Cruz del Sur bus terminal waiting for endless hours for my bus to leave to Huaraz. I´ve had breakfast, listened to some music, did some crossword puzzles, cut some Alta Montanha stickers and just finished watching “500 days of Summer”.

AERIAL IMAGES OF THE DEVIL’S NEEDLE IN BRAZIL

Not a great editing job, but definately a well put collection of images of a seldom climbed (due to weather) spire in the Serra dos Órgãos region in the state of Rio de Janeiro. The Devil’s Needle is 3rd-4th class climb up on slabs and mainly chimneys with a considerable long and steep approach, but… Read more »

K2 – SIREN OF THE HIMALAYAS

I’m not an 8000er freak, probably because I’ll never have the money to ever get there, but the Karakorum range fascinates me and I have much respect for the independent climbers that explore that region. On the other hand, I can’t stand certain groups of people that can’t see past the marketing on Everest to… Read more »
