About Distrito Federal:

Near Brazil's capital, Brasília, there is a lot of potential for good climbing. For bouldering, the BEST place by far is Cocalzinho, GO, if not the best from the hole country. Cocalzinho has hundreds and hundreds of boulder and every day new lines are openned. The hardest the local climbers have put up are some v13, still waiting for confirmations, but there is a lot of potential for harder lines everywhere. The place can be compared to Hampi for the amount of rock every way you look, with a tropical environment, forest (Cerrado, similar to the savana) everywhere and rare animals too. The other crags are great places for sport climbing, but due to the lack of support to brazilian climbers, there aren't much hard routes compared to the international level. Still, there are a lot of hard projects, such as Central do Brasil in Belchior, maybe 8b .
