Itatim – A Brazilian climbing paradise

VERSÃO EM PORTUGUÊS

Itatim is one of the best climbing spots in Brazil. Hundreds of Inselbergs (Gneiss mountains) spread across the Caatinga landscape, a unique biome in the planet with amazing scenarios, fauna and flora.

WEATHER / BEST SEASON
Dry weather, sunny and windy for most of the year. Not so rainy, but when it happens usually the rock dries pretty quick. Temperatures ranges from 65°F to 90°F (18°C to 32°C). Despite the hot weather, the constant winds make it feel pleasant, especially in the shade.
Climbing season: All year round

CLIMBING
Today there’s more than 350 routes from all kinds: Sport, Trad, Multipitch, Slabs, Overhanging, etc. And still thousands of new lines to explore. From 50ft up to 1500ft long (15m to 450m). The rock quality and texture is outstanding! Easy approaches.

All the topos are published in two guidebooks: Guia de Escalada de Itatim e Região and Montanhas de Itatim – Guia de Escaladas

Usually 15 quickdraws (for sport routes), one set of cams from #.3 to #4 (for multipitch/trad), and one 60m rope is enough. Sometimes two ropes are better for rapelling. As well some more gear depending on the route.
