The club's headquarters in Bariloche.

Club Andino Bariloche is a mountaineering organisation based in San Carlos de Bariloche, in the Argentinian Andes. It was founded on the 13th of August 1931 by Otto Meiling, Emilio Frey, Juan Javier Neumeyer and Reinaldo Knapp, a group of friends who were exploring the region and making first ascents. Emilio Frey became its first president and continued in this role during 30 years.

The club was responsible for the construction and running of a number of mountain huts in the area. Throughout its history, it has organised and funded a large number of expeditions, including many ambitious first ascents throughout the Andes.
