I’m off soon to Argentina hiking with a friend, and I’ve got an extra few days at the end set aside to climb at Frey. I’ve been there about 10yrs ago. Anyone been more recently and able to tell me the approximate chances of picking up a last minute climbing partner staying up there? Or a website with a chance of arranging a partner? It would be around 15-18th Feb. Failing that, a recommendation for a local climbing guide would be good. My Spanish is basic and rusty!
I stayed at rifugio Frey for a couple days in January. There were a few people there looking for partners so I reckon you should be able to find one if you just turn up and ask around.
That strategy worked well for an American chap I met and he was having lots of fun climbing lots of stuff. His non-climbing wife wasn't having much fun, the bunk room is damp and uncomfortable and the food wasn't very good.
