So we left around 10:30 and headed to the buses that drive you up to the Corcovado. It is a pretty easy set up. You take the metro to this one plaza and there is a booth to buy tickets, and then you stand in line. Buses come pretty regularly so you don't stand around very long. The drive up to it is gorgeous.
