    Guide: Ecuador

    Santiago has traveled extensively in 5 continents chasing adventures and climbs. He graduated with an adventure guiding and management degree from Thompson Rivers University in BC, Canada. He is also WFR certified, ASEGUIM mountain guide and lead instructor for the Colorado Outward Bound School. When he is not hanging on the ropes, you can usually find him with camera-on-hand hunting for good light.
