Bariloche is our starting point, where we meet, make an introduction to the trip and enjoy dinner together in town.
We aproach Frey from Cerro Catedral parking lot, the biggest ski resort in South America. The trail traverses with beautiful view of the Nahuel Huapi and Gutierrez lakes at the beggining and through a deep forest of Coihues and Lenga trees before getting to the hut. Frey is an amazing spot by the Toncek lake, all surrounded by spires in the skyline. According on the technical level and interests of our guests, we´ll spend the next 5 days exploring the endless options in the area.
Taking advantage of the geographical location of Bariloche, we´ll use the dessert crags, driving not more than 40 minutes east, as a backup plan in case of bad weather in Frey.

“Climbing in Patagonia was the culmination of years of training, reading, and dreaming. When I met Juan on a porch in Chalten, I knew immediately I was in good hands. His preparation for our time together was a savvy compilation of weather conditions, route knowledge, and ambition, evolving daily to provide the ultimate Patagonian experience. Juan never failed to produce a smile, even in the tough conditions and always knew just how to encourage me, that I could climb my best. During down time in camp he showed me a wealth of new knowledge that has served me well since our trip. Not only that, his in-tent stir-fry is the best I’ve ever had! I wouldn’t hesitate to call on the team at Andes Mountain Guides in the future. These guys all know their craft and the areas they guide extremely well, having formed deep relationships with locals over the years. With seeming ease, they put everything together to make my dream come true.”
