Detour.png Detour:

Hard Way Up: Teams had to find Escadaria do Passo and had to climb up a 53-stair staircase on their hands and knees, knowing that a "secret question" at the top. Teams would only know this question once they had climbed the stairs once, and the question turned out to be "how many steps have you climbed?". If they could answer if correctly, they would get their next clue. If not, they would have to climb again.
Andrew & Dan
Soft Way Down: Teams made their way to the Lacerda Elevator, a huge 240-foot elevator connecting the upper and lower portions of the city. Teams would have to climb down a cargo net that had been attached to the side, going all the way from the top to the bottom.
