When heading down on my first trip in Colombia, I found that there was a huge lack of information available online. Jacob's guides filled in the gaps. I found the information highly useful and straightforward. -Jim Lawyer, Author of: Adirondack Rock Climbing

Thank you! - Danielle B

Over the past two decades, I have made close to 10 trips down to Latin America, and have climbed at many of the places mentioned here on this blog. I have to say that The Wandering Climber is one of the best resources I've ever used. Much of what is covered in Jacob’s guides do not exist anywhere else online. - Will Sparks, Professional Guide, and Founder of SouthamericaRocks.com
