I climbed Santa Maria back in 2006 but it wa a cloudy day and was unable to see Santiaguito.
Thanks Razor! Yeah it is beautiful there (and almost always cloudy). I only had good views on Santa Maria twice out of five or six trips.
a great perspective! Is this spot on the route up Santo Tomas or did you guys head off trail?
Baarb, this was taken from the flat area around 200 meters before the summit of Santo Tomas. You only get a good view when the weather is decent though (Nov - March or so).
