Leopoldo Faria climbing at Corgas - Sagres, Portugal


The video of Leopoldo Faria climbing at Corgas - Sagres, Portugal.

We're returning to Leopoldo Faria in Portugal. This time though the climber isn't free soloing a route at Cabo da Roca, but repeating Peixe Porco, the route he freed in 2013 and the country's first 9a situated on another superb sea cliff, Corgas close to Sagres. Located on the SW tip of the Algarve region, according to Faria climbing at Sagres "is truly special because of the surroundings, the beauty of the coast, the strong wind, the Atlantic Ocean, the light house, the flat, giant green lands... all of these put together gives you a feeling of indescribable wilderness that you can't find anywhere else in Portugal"
