Ascent Trip Report

A pleasant climb with good weather. Started at Casa da Montanha and followed the 47 guide poles up the mountain. Partly very humid when walking/climbing through clouds, otherwise sunny with a pleasant temperature. The crater was reached by walking and scrambling, while the trip up Picuinho, the top of the volcano/mountain, consisted of steep scrambling. Overall a nice climb.
