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. Mar 27, 2010

My girlfriend and I will be in Santiago area with a car April 3-8th 2017. We'll have our shoes and harness but no other gear. Anyone know of anywhere to rent gear (rope,draws or a rack)? Or anyone have gear and need a partner? I spoke to some of the guiding companies about taking us out but the prices were crazy expensive! Mar 22, 2018
