If you have an adventurous spirit and general rockclimbing skills - I want to offer to you an unique experience - climbing the Corcovado rock by a route that is considered easy by the standards of sport rockclimbing - it is only a V FR category of difficulty (5.9 US). But the emotions from this "five" can compete with the most vivid impressions from the most exotic rockclimbing routes anywhere! The length of the route is 170 meters of calm, easy climbing on a beautiful, clean granite rock with large holds. The route is accessible to any rockclimber – even for a beginner with the basic rockclimbing skills.

Climbing the Corcovado rock in Rio de Janeiro

Without exaggeration, one can call the Corcovado rock in Rio de Janeiro one of the most famous cliffs in the world. The rock earned this fame after a statue was erected on its top in October 1931, which became world famous as a symbol of Brazil and Rio de Janeiro - the statue of Christ Redeemer. Wherever you are in Rio de Janeiro, at any time of the day and in any weather, the view of the majestic sculptural composition on top of a sheer cliff catches the eye and holds the attention. You don't have to be a rockclimber to remember this view and fall in love at the first glance with these swift outlines created by nature and continued by the labor of human hands.

It is safe to say that everyone who spent at least a few hours in Rio de Janeiro must have looked at the main attraction of the city with admiration. An excursion to the observation deck at the foot of the statue of Christ Redeemer in Rio, from where a crazy, best and unforgettable view of the most beautiful city in South America opens up - this is the undisputed leader among tourist excursions around the city. An impression without which leaving Rio de Janeiro is like leaving Moscow without visiting Red Square or leaving New York without visiting of the Times Square...

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
