Join Lucas, an IFMGA certified guide and discover this great Patagonian spot with this alpine rock climbing program around Refugio Frey.


+1 Day

Jan - Apr, Dec




This Alpine rock climbing in Refugio Frey will take you to one of Patagonia's climbing meccas.

The Refugio Frey (1700 m) is a one of the most recognized rock climbing spots in the Argentinian Patagonia. There's an incredible mixture of routes with different levels. It's the best granite climbing in the area no doubt!

Plus, this mountain hut has an amazing hospitality and great facilities to enjoy every minute of your stay. Located only a 3-hour hike -through a beautiful trail- away from the Cerro Catedral ski resort base, it lies right in front of the Toncek Lagoon and its surrounded by many needles and peaks from where you can choose where to go climbing.

I recommend a minimum of two days to take advantage of this great spot, but we can also go for one night or stay a longer time.

So if you're going to visit Bariloche during summer and you want to try an amazing adventure, send me a request to make this Alpine rock climbing in Refugio Frey happen!

And if you're visiting Bariloche in winter, bare in mind that this mountain hut is open year round, so check my off piste program Ski touring in Frey, Bariloche.

Mountain Guide

I was born in a very remote area of northern Argentina which gave me a special appreciation for the outdoors. When I was 16 my family moved south, closer to the mountains, and I started to climb in the Andes. I've been mountaineering – trekking and climbing – ever since.
I've traveled and climbed throughout Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, the USA, Canada and Europe. I spent two summer seasons working in Aosta, Italy where I completed numerous ascents and climbing on the area.
At some point in my younger years, my career path steered me to the telecommunications industry, scaling towers and fixing cellular systems. But the mountains were never far away and I eventually returned to my roots and become a mountain guide since 2001.
In the winter I focus on being a ski guide around the mountain range and also the volcanoes, this is how I spend part of my time on the winter seasons as well as teaching backcountry ski and avalanche awareness courses.

What people are saying about Lucas


Lucas took care of every detail and made it seamless and easy. Calm, confident, knowledgeable and connected. Everyone seemed to know and respect Lucas. Without any hesitation whatsoever, I HIGHLY recommend him.


Excelent trek to Laguna Ilon


My husband and I have been on many incredible hikes all over Argentina with Lucas as our Guide. He has taken us to the most phenomenal places and pushed us (willingly) to our limits whilst at the same time always feeling very safe knowing that he is such an expert and highly qualified mountaineer. We have crossed glaciers wearing crampons as the sun rises, we have climbed volcanoes that we thought would never be physically possible, and Lucas has been fun and entertaining along the way. He jas great judgement - the tripas are planned and amended along the way in order that you can totally disconnect from everyday life. Every trip also contains interaction with local people and so we have learnt a lot about Argentinean culture and Argentinean people. Georgina and Rob Smart - England


Have recently hiked up Mt Tronador with Lucas as a guide. The rest of the team and I were very happy to have him guide us. He is very professional and experienced, yet also very attentive and friendly. Would definitely consider hiring him again for our next adventure!


I have been skiing for 40 years and climbing for 10, I was so happy to have Lucas guide me to help me with my skiing goals. I felt safe and comfortable with his knowledge and experience and truly enjoyed the experience. He provided me options for me to choose on the level difficulty or risk that I was willing to take, and allowed me the option to choose. I met my goals and would highly recommend Lucas for future skiing or climbing for others and will connect with him in the future.” Safety and fun is are my two most important goals in the backcountry and he helped achieve those goals
