The Dedo de Deus formation

Andrew Lenz, my partner in the Rio Climbing Collaborative, and I climbed Dedo de Deus (Finger of God) in the Serra dos Orgaos National Park outside the city of Rio de Janeiro.  One of the more beautiful places I have explored in some time.  A fantastic climb and a fantastic summit.  We climbed about 5 or 6 pitches of mostly moderate chimneys to the summit.  Below is a video and some pictures from the climb.

Asa! That was a sweet climb! There were about 3 or 4 pitches of chimney on Half Dome’s Regular Route that looked a lot like the chimneys on Dedo de Deus. It looked like you were some place in heaven with all the mist rising around the rocks. I think you picked a great way to prep for B School!

By the way, since the comments ask for a website, I included a link to my foam roofing & solar power website
Getting up on roofs over the years has provided a small perk that only climbers can fully appreciate.
