Hey all,  I heard that it is possible to get to the top of sugarloaf on foot, rather than taking the cablecars.  Is this accurate and is it dangerous? Apparently there is a section where you need ropes to climb up? I'm not a climber but maybe with a guide it is doable?  Thank you

I think you're referring to the route called "Costão". 


If you're not a climber, I advise you to go with a guide. There is indeed a section where you need to climb, and you should have climbing equipment to do it. 


It is not only the climbing section that is dangerous. There are several sections where you need to be very careful because it is quite steep and there is nothing to hold on to. 


Be careful and never go on your own. 


Hope this was helpful.
