Today’s plan to climb the Finger of God fell through due to bad weather later this week. Today was spent trekking around Rio attempting to find a fourth harness and shoes for Fabian to climb Corcovado tomorrow – no luck. So tomorrow we’re up at 6am and heading to the start of the K2 route (Brasilian IVsup (approx F5/F5+)). Tom and Reynolds will be climbing the 150m route first and Fab and I will meet them at the summit. Time pending we’ll then head down and start the climb again.

As Fab is a less experienced climber this does mean that we will not be swinging leads so I’ll be leading all of the pitches on the route with Fab seconding on top-rope belay.

Fingers crossed that we can get both climbs in tomorrow as the weather on Sunday is *hot* which is less than ideal for doing the climb…
