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!
