Bouldering in Brazil
Tags: climbing, adventure, Brazil, Other, BoldMoves, Prepared
My friend, Garret, and I have been wearing our chacos for the past 3 years now. We've been hiking in Venezuela, climbing Peru, and even riding horses in Colombia.
Currently, we are in Brazil where this photo was taken. We set off to hike a trail that we had done a few months ago in the fall. The summer sun had grown the vegetation to 3x what it was before and the razor sharp ferns and shrubbery had us wishing we were off the trail and in a more open terrain.
Eventually we made to a crossroads where we could either continue on the trail or hike across the coastline. We chose option B and headed down to the boulders. The terrain ended being more challenging than we anticipated. We jumped gaps, skirted walls, and even swam for a bit. The Chacos held true and after the long hike we sat down for some lunch where we took this photo!
3 years and counting!
