Climbing Sugarloaf, rather than taking the cable car up, is one of the most rewarding things you can do while in town. You can experience one of a kind rock climbing adventure, while also visiting one of the most famous tourist attractions in town. It is common for us to hear that it was the highlight of the trip.

Our international team of guides come from varied backgrounds and are some of the most experienced and best reviewed guides in the city. We have over 15 years of experience guiding clients from all of the world and while safety and professionalism are always our priority, we also make a point of creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We enjoy getting to know people and sharing our experience of living in Rio. Often times our conversation strays from the typical topics of local history or geography, into more complex subjects like politics and culture. We want people to get an idea of the complexities of this amazing city, while also enjoying a great climb.

Oh my goodness. It’s difficult to put into words what an incredible experience this was.
From the beginning I was communicating seamlessly with the owners/ guides- Mingo & Andrew, who were extremely flexible with my flight delays and changing schedules.
The one thing on top of my Rio to do list was to conquer my first multi pitch climb and Andrew more than delivered. The process was extremely well planned & communicated. I brought my own shoes/ harness and they took care of everything else- helmets, rope, etc. Andrew’s experience and knowledge of climbing put me at ease.
Regardless of your climbing experience there is a route for you on Sugarloaf, and fabulous FUN guides willing to take you and show you the ropes (quite literally). This was the best way to see/ experience Rio - even better than Cristo Redentor :). Put this at the top of your to do in Rio list!
Amazing views with an amazing guide

Had a fantastic morning with Mingo who showed us the adventurous route up the sugar loaf. We felt very safe the whole way up and Mingo was very knowledgeable.
Awesome guide

Awesome climbing guide - super safe, extremely knowledgeable and just an all around great person to hang out with. Went with a friend to climb Italianos and Secundo and had the best time with Mingo. Can’t recommend him enough!

Went to Rio for New Year’s and learned that Rio has fantastic climbing. After initial messages discerning my experience level, they gave me detailed options of routes to choose from. They also had equipment to rent. Then we met up and my guide Gabriel was extremely experienced and knowledgeable. I enjoyed a challenging multi-pitch 5.8-5.9 climb and felt safe the entire time. I wish I had more time to discover Rio by mountain.
