Description

The Principal is the largest of the towers of Frey. Several routes of varying difficulty ascend every aspect.

Getting There

From the refugio ascend to the saddle to the west of the lake and approach past the Aguja M2 and Abuelo, ascend snow slopes and scree to the base of the Principal. Depending on your route choice you will need to modify your approach.
