Youngest On Everest: Jordan Checks In

Apr 19, 2010
Outside Magazine

Jordan Romero, the 13-year-old attempting to become the youngest person to summit Everest, checked in with his own "phlog" over the weekend. It seems Team Romero is seeing a lot of sunshine and eating "gourmet Nepalese food". They reached Chinese base camp late last week and yesterday hiked up to intermediate camp (18,700 ft., according to the team's Twitter) before returning to base camp.
