Climbing Sugarloaf Mountain – A Killer Workout Rewarded With Amazing Vistas

On a Spring trip to Rio, we signed up with Rio Hiking to rock climb for the first time.  We could not have picked a more beautiful or challenging climb.  Tell us if you agree!  You can also read more about our ascent in Siddhi’s post at http://pauperswithouttravel.com/2012/06/11/climbing-sugarloaf-mountain-an-unforgettable-testament-of-beauty/

Fellow climbers making their way on ropes

An idyllic contemplation spot

Cactus plants are aplenty

Simply beautiful and unusual for us

The waves hugging the rocks

Simply spectacular views

Why can’t one just stay in paradise?

Still hiking and the moon is out

It is dark and the city is lit up

At the top, at the end of a glorious hike. Simply gorgeous!
