1-day Tronador summit from Refugio Meiling
Our experience with Lucas was fantastic. He was always on top of everything, from rough hiking conditions, to how much water we were drinking (or not drinking enough), to the blisters in our feet. It was late in the season so reaching the peak of Mount Tronador was tough and most guides were not even doing it anymore. But Lucas took us nonetheless to at least try and get there even though it was not granted we were going to make it. But we did, even with a very difficult terrain he pulled his best to take two inexperienced hikers to the peak
Climbing Tronador: from the hut to the summit in 1 day
I had a great time in Bariloche and went with Andescross to climb in Frey and also ascend Cerro Tronador along with a friend I was travelling with. Jorge is awesome and made the whole experience enjoyable. His love of this beautiful area comes across and he was very accommodating with us, working around the weather (it snowed one night at Frey) and maximizing the amount and quality of climbing we did. He also took us to Cerro Lopez to get one last climb in since we had minimal good weather up at Frey. Jorge is a great guide and I was very comfortable climbing with him. After a couple day\'s rest we ascended Cerro Tronador with Nahuel. It is a great glacier climb with a spicy finish. A pretty demanding ascent and descent, but well worth the view from Pico Argentina. I would definitely go climbing with Jorge and Andescross again and hope to soon!
