Type of Trip
I am happy to invite you to live 3 unforgettable days around the Frey Hut.
As you may know, Frey is one of the best mountain huts in Patagonia. It lies in the peaceful wilderness of the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Furthermore, the alpine landscape, its beautiful granite spires as well as the wide variety of climbs make Frey one of the best areas to practice rock climbing.
During this 3-day climbing tour we will first hike into the Toncek Lagoon’s Valley, which is 1700 meters high. Then it will be time to practice some rock climbing in the different spires that the Frey Valley has for you. Among them you will find these multi-pitch routes:
- Frey or El Tonto Needles,
- La Vieja,
- Cohete Lunar,
- El Abuelo.
If you want to join me on this summer adventure around the Frey Hut keep in mind you have to be an intermediate climber with a good fitness level. However, there are also many other itineraries suitable for beginners. All the climbing routes in the area are protected with bolts and modern safety estructures. You have no excuses!!!
The best part of this experience is that by the end of the day we can go for a refreshing bath on the waters of the Toncek Lagoon. Then we’ll have dinner and sleep in the warm and cozy Frey Hut.
This amazing program can be done from September to April, during the spring and summer. There are many other interesting trips in these seasons, like this 3-day climbing tour in Mount Tronador that I also offer.

About the Guide
UIAGM-IFMGA-IVBV Mountain Guide
My name is Jorge, and I am one of the first IFMGA/UIAGM Certified Mountain Guides in Argentina. I got my full UIAGM-IFMGA certification in 2005. I was one of the pioneer mountain guides in Argentina and Chile to introduce Ski Mountaineering and Backcountry Skiing back in 1999.
In 2009, I became one of the first Argentines to work as a Ski Guide on the Antarctic Peninsula and ski peaks in that area. I helped, co-worked and guided ski athletes from Salomon, Arcteryx, Smith and the North face, such as Xavier de Le Rue, Luca de Bari, Eric Hjorleifson and other pro-athletes of the ski industry in the production of ski films in Argentina and Chile.
I have been guiding across Patagonia for more than 15 years now. In the past few years I have also guided in Antarctica, Norway and Iceland.
Patagonia is my home. This is where I started to develop most of my guiding skills and experiences at an early age. Today, I spend half of the year guiding overseas, and the other half guiding in Argentina and Chile.
Regarding my personal resume as a guide and sportsman, some of the highlights include classic Granite climbs in Yosemite National Park like the Half Dome Regular NW face in a day and Sentinel Rock (Herbert- Chouinard route); several ski mountaineering expeditions to Alaska including the inner Chugach range; the Wrangell's-Saint Elias range, spending two weeks in a tent in the Icefield, skiing couloirs and faces as much as we could. Other great mountaineering expeditions I went on include:
- A remote expedition to Mariano Moreno in the Patagonian Icefield
- Several rock climbs in Europe, like the Dolomites, Slovakia, French and Swiss Alps, and Spain
- Guiding the Mont Blanc ascent on skis
- Technical classic ice/rock Rebuffat- Terray on Pelerins in Chamonix
- Frendo Spur in Chamonix
- Fitz Roy and other satellites spires in Patagonia
I happily spend a lot of my time on skis, and guiding mostly technical backcountry and volcanoes in Patagonia.
I’m fluent in Spanish and English.
