but Jordan Romero did! He broke the record for youngest person to climb Mount Everestthe highest mountain on Earthwhen he was only 13! Jordan Romero Jordans journey began when he was 9 years old and noticed a mural in his elementary school hallway showing the Seven Summits the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. He decided then that he wanted to climb to the top of every one of themand he did! In fact, he is the youngest person to have ever done so. Now, at 17 years old, he is attempting to climb the highest peak in each of the 50 states (hes already completed 14!).
Asia, China/Nepal, Mount Everest, 29,035 ft (8,850 m)

BOOK: No Shortcuts to the Top, by Ed Viesturs. Viesturs climbed the 14 highest peaks in the world and is one of my inspirations. MOVIE: The IMAX documentary Everest.

GEAR: For alpine mountaineering, the ice axe. Its a tool that has saved a lot of lives. PART OF THE CLIMB: Reaching the summit. Mountain climbing can be slow. Theres a lot of pushing through nasty weather and walking uphill. But when you nally get to the top, its the best feeling ever. PHILOSOPHY: Always cherish the moment.
