1.2.1. Aguja Frey 13 routes in Area

Mostly Trad
Unique Features And Strengths:

A beautiful hut and campground in a climbing mecca with a lake for washing off.


Frey is inaccessible by road - it's around a 4 to 5 hour trek; so you'll be staying the night or week. There is a Refugio with (at time of our visit) a lovely couple who make fresh dinner every night and have stocks of beer and other treats. There are several tatty guidebooks and generally a lot of other climbers passing through - some information is easy to use, it depends on how wild you are willing to be.

Access Issues:

A 5 hour trek after a bus ride from Bariloche - not a day crag.


Bus to the start of the walking track, then hike uphill for 5 hours, following signs to Refuggio Frey

Where To Stay:

Stay at the Refugio (around $15) or camp on hard rock with 50km hour winds...
