    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.

    About the 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.

    Lucas is an all-round and really good guide. I really enjoyed my trip with him. He is capable of adjusting the difficulty of the terrain to the capabilities of his clients. Would recommend him to anybody.

    It was a real pleasure to spend two amazing days with Lucas. Really nice to spend time with him and most important Lucas is really a good guide. The trips were amazing with a fantastic scenario. Even if snow conditions were not the best, the panorama has played a key role in making this trip unforgettable

    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
