13 Year old to conquer Everest

A 13-year-old Californian boy is attempting to become the youngest person ever to climb Mount Everest.

The world’s tallest mountain is the final leg in Jordan’s attempt on the Seven Summits, a daunting mountaineering challenge which takes in the highest peaks in seven continents.

ordan and his parents, both experienced mountaineers, climbed the first – Africa’s Kilimanjaro – in July 2006, when he was only 10.
They scaled Kosciuszko in Australia the following year, then Elbrus in Russia three months later and Aconcagua in Argentina five months after that.
In June 2008 – six months after the Andes climb – they completed Mount McKinley in Alaska and, within three months, they had also scaled Cartensz Pyramid in Indonesia.
Jordan said he was originally inspired by a painting in his school’s hallway showing all seven peaks.

Thought this was kinda coool =]
