    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.

    The entire expedition was really awesome very much because of the respect, trust and leadership of Jose Luis and his team management. He is one of the finest guides I have the pleasure to work with over my climbing adventures. Huge thank you!
