Youngest On Everest: Up to ABC

May 17, 2010
Outside Magazine

Team Jordan is watching and waiting. The team passed up a weather window this weekend, but did move from advanced base camp (ABC) to the north col and back again. The team is staying put at ABC, waiting for a longer weather window expected to open over the coming weekend.

After arriving at ABC, the team put this post on its Facebook page: "You know at the drag races, when they spin and heat the tires.... that's what it feels like we're doing."

To watch the team's live progress, check out their interactive map. For more on Jordan Romero, the 13-year-old attempting to become the youngest to summit Everest and the Seven Summits, check out our April profile.
