The stone is the biggest stone block by the sea of the world.
The stone height, 844m, gave the most difficult trail title to the stone, with a route of 3 hours to go up at least, It’s necessary so much attention, physical condition and, specially, an experienced guide support over this heavy route. The most difficult stretch is known as Carrasqueira, a big wall of 30m high, almost straight that’s necessary to use hands to keep going. But all the effort and sweat there’s a reward: with no doubt ever, the most fantastic and sweeping views of the city. It’s unbelievable!
From the top, there’s a panoramic view of the whole South and West area, besides of the mountain from Tijuca Forest. The access is made by Sorimã route.
