David Lama disembarks in Rio de Janeiro for an unprecedented challenge: to climb the route 'Atalho do Diabo' on Corcovado in just one day. Corcovado, with Christ the Redeemer on top, is the stage for this adventure. The 300-meter route was opened in the 90s and two of its conquerors, Alexandre Portela and Sérgio Tartari, guide us through all the details that make this climb one of the most difficult in Brazil. Lama shares the rope with Brazilian Felipe Camargo. The heat, the degree of difficulty, the hornets, and the length of the road are some of the ingredients that will make this climb dramatic.
