Jordan Romero, 13, breaks Everest record
A 13-year-old American, he became the youngest climber ever summit of Mount Everest on Sunday.
Jordan Romero‘s journey was followed by GPS coordinates on his blog, logging his team climb Everest, which lies 29,028 feet (8847 meters) above sea level.
“Your dreams come true now,” said a statement on Jordan’s blog. Everyone sounded incredibly happy. “
Before Saturday, the youngest climber to scale Mount Everest was 16-year-old Temba Tsheri of Nepal.
“I know you would like to hear from the boy himself, but he is still flat on his stomach tapped,” a Jordanian member of the climbing team said in a message posted Saturday on his blog. “The effort he put out that last more like 48 hours – you’re not going to the story, if you see it and read it to believe.”
Romero is for the climax of the Chinese side of the mountain in Nepal to refuse permission on grounds of age, according to nepalnews.com.
Prior to the start of Romero, the Big Bear, California, said he wanted to climb Everest, more young people to inspire you to get outdoors.
“Obese children are the future running of America, the way things,” he said on 9 April in Kathmandu. “I hope to change that by what I do: climbing and motivational speaking.”
With a smile he added: “I do this for me a little, even to do something great.”
Jordan has now climbed six of the seven highest peaks on seven continents, such as the “Seven Summits” means.
“This is not an isolated vacation,” said Paul Romero, Jordan’s father, before the two are taken Everest in Nepal in attack. “This is a lifestyle.”
Romero started the family to cope with the “Seven Summits” in summer 2005. He was only 9 when she climbed 19,341 feet (5,895 meters) to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
There is a debate over whether the highest mountain in Oceania Kosciuszko in Australia or mainland Carstensz Pyramid in Indonesia, so Romero and his family got both.
The only point left for him to climb after the Everest Mount Vinson in Antarctica, the 16 067 feet (4897 meters). A trip there is planned for December.
