Hike the Christ

Organized by Cassio Uribbe Castro
It will be a hard 2hs hike up to the Christ but I promise you that worth the effort.

We will meet at 13h at Parque Lage entrance (the one with a playground) and take probably around 2hs to go all the way up (704m). This is a hike and not a clibbing event. You won't need ropes or special equipments. But this is not the best trail for beginners. Only if your a don't-give-up-no-matter-what type of person.

How much:
The hike is free. If you want to enter the Christ monument you will have to pay the ticket (R$ 20,00). You have to pay it in cash there. To get down, you can walk your way back (not a good idea) or pay R$ 10,00 for a van to take you to Cosme Velho (where the cable car starts)

What will you need:
A lot of energy. Some chocolat bars are welcome. A big bottle of water and your camera. We will have time to make a small picnic up there, so if your strong, bring more food :)

Cancelation: This event will atomaticaly be canceled if it's raining. If it's only fog, it still a nice thing to do (you will get the impression that your going to see a Zen-Master-Kung-Fu-Old-Guy in a mystic mountain right in the middle of a huge city :)

Send me a private message if you need more infos
