Welcome to Frey, Bariloche where the climbing is spectacular. Alpine mountains, gorgeous lakes and a charming town combine for an amazing Patagonian experience!
Situated roughly 20km from downtown Bariloche, the Frey refuge and climbing routes are elevated at 1700m above sea level and sit aside the prominent Frey spire.
This area is truly wondrous to behold with its pristine mountain terrain. The refuge itself overlooks the green coloured Toncek lagoon and there is Mount Catedral in the background to really put the icing on the cake.
I began my climbing in Frey when I was a child and I started learning to climb in my local school here. As a local it gives me great pleasure to offer you the chance to join me here, where I can show you the local secrets!
Renowned the world over, Frey’s climbing is done on orange granite of excellent quality and is shaped into fissures and other useful climbing formations.
With a variety of routes and level of difficulty you won’t be short of options and we can find what suits you best.
After meeting in Bariloche, our journey to the refuge will be about 3 hours. A really lovely construction, the refuge is comprised of granite sculpture work, wood panels and a tiled roof.
Accomodating up to 40 individuals and with all the necessary provisions, the Frey refuge offers a comfortable retreat during your climbing trip.
This trip and its programme are flexible so you can select the routes and locations to meet your preferences. Please read the itinerary for more information.
