Trip Report: Refugio Frey, Argentina

A trad climbing heaven, Refugio Frey is a self-contained Disneyland where the only ticket for admission is a 4+ hour hike and stoke to climb. Whether spending a week or a month there, the Frey is a rare gem in the world of backcountry alpine climbing: even while easily accessible from town, the only thing stopping you from climbing there for months on end is the tedium of the hike to town so you can replenish your food supplies. Situated in northern Patagonia in the high alpine of Bariloche, the dusty orange and pink granite spires called to me as soon as I Googled “Refugio Frey.”
