I moved to Sao Paulo 6 weeks ago and recently discovered a rock climbing center around the corner from my apartment. My friends and I have tried it out a few times and its really good, apparently the largest in Brazil. We are just beginners, but are looking for some others to go with us to get some more partners so that we can go more frequently and get less tired! It is located in Perdizes, just around the corner from the Palmerias Stadium. Give me a shout if you are interested in joining us. Website is below. You do not need to have any previous climibng experience, you can rent all required equipment there and there is one instructor that speaks english too.
