13-year old sets out to climb Everest and break record

with one comment

Jordan Romero wants to climb Mt. Everest and be the youngest person to have climbed the tallest mountain in each continent. He has already climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro when he was 10 years old as well as the other peaks.

He reached the base camp on the Chinese side of Everest and is acclimatising before he heads up. Romero will be making the trip with his parents, who have accompanied him on every trip so far. While Romero’s ambitions are high, he does not eliminate the possibility of turning back during the trip if conditions become too dangerous.

13- years old and climbing Everest. When I see this, I don’t think about how crazy it is that a 13-year old would want to do this. I think about how crazy it is that the parents gave him so much support and provided the means to do so. Sick.
