The Virtual Sherpa – An Interesting Blog for Mountaineers

Jackson Nielsen

A blog that I find interesting was created and written by Mickey who goes by the online name of “The Virtual Sherpa”. I first came across this blog from Youtube where Mickey posts videos to aid in guiding people up various mountainous routes, namely Colorado’s 14,000′ peaks. This blog interests me because I have summited a handful of these peaks myself and have often used The Virtual Sherpa’s videos and blog to aid in learning about particular routes and what to expect from the terrain.
