Stayed in the area for 10 days climbing until we had no energy left on ourselves... what an amazing trad climbing area!
Nice fall colors on the hike up
Climbed a few towers and peaks over a 5 day period. Torre Principal, Frey, Pico Vara, and a couple other small peaks. Beautiful area
Passed through the area while doing a looped version of Day 1 of the Nahuel Huapi Traverse. Took the ski-lift up to Refugio Lynch, hiked along the Cordon then dropped down to Frey and back to Villa Catedral through the forest. First day of good weather for ages with more bad stuff the next day, certainly worth the wait.
Fun times and my first time hiring a guide (we had no rock gear). Neat Rock- I'd love to go back!
We cragged rather than summited.
Bicho was great and showed Robin and I a good time. If I remember correctly this was the start of the Nahuel Huapi traverse for several days.
Followed a trail to the high point overlooking the lake. Followed other trails into lush forests on the backside. I have photos somewhere and will post. Beautiful spot. Cheers William
To my surprise the summit metal box had no book inside but a bunch of papers left by some other climbers. When I opened it a bunch of those flew away...
Didnt even bother to leave anything. I think the original summit book is in the CAB ( Club Andino Bariloche )
