Climbing the Devil’s Needle – bring your drone

Take a national park outside Rio de Janairo, the Serra dos Orgãos, and take two skilled climbers, then add a drone with a video camera. The footage is truly stunning. The climbers Deyvisson Bastos S. and Marcelo Vieira ascend “The Devil’s Needle” and I’m in awe not just of their fearlessness and climbing skills but at their stunt at the end retrieving the quadcopter while balancing on the very top of the summit with no space to side step.

Enjoy the video. Make sure to set the quality to high.
