Some months later the duo returned to Brazil to climb some of the best-known and most difficult routes of Rio de Janeiro. We photographed for two days, but the rainy weather did not help.

Psychological control

That climbing is a sport that combines physical and mind, I have never questioned it, but climbing without ropes is something for those very cold-blooded ones. This is the hype of psicobloc, a kind of climbing without ropes, but with water underneath. Either a river, lake or sea, the higher one climbs, the greater the […]
