  • Physics: average

Although it has 3 sections of rope graded 3ºsup BRA, they can be crossed artificially, with a safety rope + fixed rope.​

Greatest national mountaineering classic. All the leading guides on this itinerary are climbers, which brings more safety to the expedition due to the technical knowledge they have to mainly avoid accidents. On the three technical sections of the Pontão Ricardo Gonçalves route, we used climbing ropes, safety ropes, helmets and child seats. We are proud to be the agency with the highest access rate to the true summit of the massif, Itatiaiaçu, where the log book is located in the famous goal box. Experienced or beginner, this mountain cannot be left off your list.

 

DAY 0 (prior to shipment): meeting at 9:00 pm at the Picus hostel in Itamonte-MG for the night in bed. Food not included.

 

DAY 1: We will wake up at 5:00 am to have breakfast, pack our backpacks and check in at the park. We will continue towards BC Rebouças to start the trek at around 08:00 to the summit of Pico das Agulhas Negras. Access is via a steep climb made up of several ramps and stone slabs, which require good footwear grip. At some points it is necessary to use safety equipment (rope, carabiners and child seat, all included) to be able to cross safely even on days of light rain. In order for the true summit (where the book is located) to be reached, we must reach the false summit (Cruzeiro) by 12:30 at the latest. On the way down we will do three rappels, one of 4, another of 15 and finally one of 8 meters. Return to the park entrance for departure. Breakfast included in the stay option.
