13-year old boy becomes youngest to summit Everest


13-year old Jordan Romero became the youngest person to ever summit Mt. Everest today. Romero completed the climb with his dad, his girlfriend, a trusty team of Sherpas; since they couldn't tackle it from the Nepal side due to age restrictions, the team headed to China and ended up summiting via a much more difficult route. He's one away from completing the Seven Summit — the highest peaks on each continent — he climbed Kilamanjaro at age nine, and is planning a trip to the last summit, Vinson Massif in Antarctica, this December.
