Summary:

Lat / Long: -14.409287, -53.893433

description

Brazil is a large country with a lot of climbing potential. Historically most development has focused in the southeast in the states of 'São Paulo', 'Rio de Janeiro' and 'Minas Gerais' however there is now development happening elsewhere.

Styles cover almost everything, from bouldering and single pitch sport routes, to long alpine routes. Climbing gear is very expensive in Brazil (~2-3x what it costs in North America or Europe), making long multi-pitch sport routes more common than elsewhere.

Some guidebooks are easily available for more popular areas (see http://www.companhiadaescalada.com.br/livraria/livraria.htm) but many are only available locally and your best bet is to find a local to show you around. Climbers in Brazil are generally friendly and more likely than average to speak some English. Posting here: http://www.escaladabrasil.com/ may help you find a partner.

Summary:
Sport climbing, Bouldering and other styles

Lat / Long: -18.568584, -45.457915

summary

The state of Minas Gerais holds unforgettable historical, architectural, and ecological riches. This state's name, which means "general mines," was inspired by the area's great mineral wealth.

description

Minas Gerais is one of the 26 states of Brazil. It ranks as the second most populous, the third by gross domestic product (GDP), and the fourth largest by area in the country. The state's capital and largest city, Belo Horizonte, is a major urban and finance center in Latin America, and is the sixth largest municipality in Brazil, after the cities of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Brasilia and Fortaleza, but its metropolitan area is the third largest in Brazil with just over 5,500,000 inhabitants, after those of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

approach

Aeroporto Internacional Tancredo Neves, near Belo Horizonte, is the main point of entry to Minas Gerais. The domestic airport of Pampulha is more centrally located and closer to Belo Horizonte's main bus station, where connections to other parts of Minas and the country can be made. Bus travel between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro is feasible, but it is advisable to take leito (bed) bus service late at night and arrive in early in the morning.

Huaraz, located 415 kms north of Peru's capital Lima, is an outdoor lover's paradise. There are dozens of hiking and mountain bike trails.

It is an alpine climbing mecca with thousands of people coming here each year to complete epic tours up the Andes.

There are plenty of alpine climbing stores and there are some sport climbing stores scattered amongst them. The town center is the best place to find these stores

Getting there

There are night busses running from Lima everyday from most bus companies. The cost is between 70-135 PEN (sols) (26-46 USD). The three main bus companies are Cial: Chepest of the lot, however the 9 hour night ride is still very manageable. Movil Tours: Mid range Cruz Del Sur: Top of the line, however the 21:00-06:00 travel time brings very little advantage over Cial.

Where to stay

There are loads of hostels for all budgets. I can highly recommend Olaza. It is a mid range hostel costing 100 Sols per night per room. It is very very clean, well run, breakfast (with massive pot of coffe), hot water with great pressure located about 15min walk from the town center.
