Hey Claude! Innagood? There is a lot of climbing in Chapada Diamantina!!! In Lençois you wiil find some sport routes and boulders. And in Igatu climb a lot of boulders!

Ola Claude! If you go to Lençois go to Fora da trilha and looking for Valadão (a friend of mine). He knows a lot about routes and boulders there. Igatu is the best place to do boulders...There you can ask about Beto, he has got a albergue near the boulder and routes. Enjoy!!! Paula
