ITINERARY

DAY 1

Bariloche.  We meet at the airport and transfer to your hotel where we do an intro of the trip and check gear. After we go out for dinner. This cozy town by the lake offers good restaurants, nightlife and D.

DAY 2

Frey approach. From downtown we drive to the foothills of Cerro Catedral, a world class ski resort. From here we traverse by the Gutierrez Lake to get to the Van Titter creek and walk the last switchbacks to Refugio Frey, at 1770 meters above sea level.  A porter will help us with the supplies for the next days. After getting there, we set up our tents and get the first glimpse of the area granite spires. Depending on how we feel, we might do some climbing in the evening.
