Departing before midday from the Catedral Ski Resort. We will take a well signed trail that crosses a burned forest (as product of a fire that happened a few years ago). After a 2-hour hike the trail goes into a valley called Van Titter, running through a high forest of lengas trees. Then we will cross the Van Titter River and ascend about 50 meters by the trail to get to the Piedritas Refuge. From this point, the most physical part of the day begins. The trail ascends 300 meters until arriving at the Frey Hut (1700 m). We’ll rest and enjoy an excellent home made dinner at the hut. Estimated walking time: 4 hours.
Departure from the Frey Hut ascending to the ridge of the Catedral Mountain. Then we’ll descend across a loose rocky terrain to cross the Rucaco Valley. Finally, we must ascend the Brecha Negra Mountain (2010 m) and descend again towards the San Martín Hut, which is next to the Jakob Lagoon. We will rest and enjoy a excellent home made dinner at the hut. Estimated hiking time: 6-7 hours.
We will hike around the San Martín hut, visiting to the Tempanos Lagoon without backpacks.
At noon we’ll start the descent to Bariloche by the Jakob’s normal route, which goes through the Casa de Piedra Valley.
Open to everyone

I’m a Physical Education Teacher, Ski Patroller and AAGM- UIMLA Mountain Guide. I was born in S. C. de Bariloche (Patagonia). I started “to play in the mountains” in early age, skiing and exploring trekking trails and the most emblematic shelters around Bariloche.
After graduating I began working in environmental education with children and adults in the Club Andino Bariloche and in an educational NGO dedicated to tourism in natural environments. I worked several years in Europe as a ski patroller, and currently work as a teacher in the Argentinian Ski Patrollers School (EASP). I also worked as avalanche consultor in companies.
I have various certifications, among them: WFR (Wilderness First Responder), Lifeguard Equipie (Andorran Red Cross) and Observer Nivo- Meteo (ACNA "per the Association of neu coneixement I allaus them") and the AIARE Level II (Analyzing snow stability and avalanche Hazard course).
Last years, I’ve been working between ski stations and guiding in big and amazing mountains in Patagonia, Alaska, Bolivia and Peru. I’m a professional outdoor woman and mountain lover who appreciate the opportunity of guide new clients in the surroundings of my home: “Bariloche, in North Patagonia”.
