While some countries are still trying to get someone to be the first person from them to get to the top of Mount Everest, some people want to be the youngest ever to do so. Jordan Romero, 13, from Big Bear Lake, California, is set to become the youngest person to ever conquer Everest. That’s if he makes it of course.
The youngster already has a list of achievements that most outdoor enthusiasts can only dream of.
“He was the youngest American, at age 10, to summit Africa’s 19,340-foot Mount Kilimanjaro, that continent’s highest peak. The same year he added 7,310-foot Mount Kosciusko in Australia and Europe’s 18,510-foot Mount Elbrus to his summit accomplishments. At age 11 he set the age record for South America’s 22,834-foot Mount Aconcagua and bagged North America’s 20,320-foot Denali.”
