Climbing gear in Santiago:

www.andesgear.cl
www.tatoo.cl
www.justclimb.cl
www.chilemontaña.cl
www.lacumbreonline.cl

If you're contemplating going to Chile and leaving some gear at home, bear in mind that the cost is going to range for $10 more expensive for harnesses and simple stuff to as much as 30-50% more expensive for things like quickdraws and ropes. If you're looking at these sites, know that 1,000 Chilean pesos is equivalent to about $2.00 US.
