Professional climbers David Lama and Felipe Camargo set out to conquer one of the most difficult and mystical routes in all of Brazil, "Atalho Do Diablo", also known as the Devil's Shortcut.
The Thrill Of Brazil: After meeting US climber Paul Robinson five years ago during a visit to Colorado, Brazilian local Felipe Camargo has been desperate to show Paul the climbing in his native country. After years of nagging/gentle reminders, Paul is finally in Brazil and straight out of the gate, things are looking good for a successful trip.
Am 7. Mai startet adidas Outdoor einen weltweiten Online Wettbewerb. Die Teilnehmer können einen 7-tägigen Outdoor-Trip nach Brasilien mit Boulder-Session in Itatiaia, Slacklinen am Strand von Ipanema, Sightseeing in Rio de Janeiro und anderen tollen Outdooraktivitäten wie Kajaken und Stand Up Paddling gewinnen.
In this video, Felipe Camargo flows, freely, through one of the most beautiful and impressive roofs of Ouro Preto, making the first ascent of the hard "Libertadores", a V14. It's an intense sequence of small crimps, with a long dyno to a bad sloper in the end.
