Twitter, Facebook, Google+, blah blah blah. There are so many information outlets and so little time. Lot’s of great stories, some useful and some just plain interesting, and so little time. Here is a roundup of our favorite stories around the interweb this past week:

  • How to Handle a Yuppie in the Woods, by Trails Edge – We all have a well to do friend or loved one, that sees the exciting pictures from your latest epic adventure, that wants to partake in the madness. Here is the perfect how-to guide. Love this madness!
  • POLL: When do you Hire a Guide?, by Adventure Journal – An interesting discussion on the American versus European views of hiring a guide.
  • Route Profile: Johnny Vegas, by American Alpine Association – A Red Rocks classic! A welcoming (5.6) three-pitch trad route with many variations. I climbed this in April as an approach to other climbs and enjoyed it. [(Johnny Vegas  (5.6, 400′) -> Solar Slab (5.6, 1220′) -> Rainbow Buttress (5.8+, 1200′)]
