Meets Urubu Rei a bit higher than Tentação

One of the nicest lines of Pedra do Urubu. Single ring bolt at the top.

Start: down a few metres from Speed, going around the boulder. It moves to the right and then up to DRBs.

Starts right of Urubu Sacana but quickly moves to its left, veering up to single ring bolt at top.

Around the obvious crack from left to right. Pre-placing gear is advisable. Small and micro cams, stoppers and RPs.

Can be led on trad. Starts from Urubu Sacana and goes right to reach the corner.

Beautiful, proud arete in a stunning setting. Starts with a dynamic boulder problem into balancy and nerve fraying top out.

resin holds glued on the rock. Not cool!

Overhanging flake with a bolt at the end for top roping


Starts at the Oposição do Urubu, then goes to the back of the boulder, facing the ocean. Traverses in diagonal left all the way towards the end of the boulder, crossing a bolt that does look too flash. The traverse is quite easy, only quite exposed. Usual route taken to set up the top rope for all other climbs.

Starts from Oposição do Urubu. When reaches the back face of boulder straight line up to DRBs.

Same start as Urubu Mestre but goes on to the right up to single ring bolt to the top.

Next one to the left of Urubu Mestre.

Starts at the bottom of the back of Pedra do Urubu traversing low to the left and then going up using the arête. Solo.
