Team Romero had a busy weekend. They spent their first night at the North Col (phlog above) and climbed as high as Camp 2 (app. 27,450 feet) before returning to advanced base camp for a few days of rest. Jordan, the team reports, is “a tad tired and in need of sleep before we make the biggest climb in the world, but strong as expected.

Check out the team's Flickr page for photos of the weekend climbs. For more on Jordan, the 13-year-old attempting to become the youngest person to summit Everest and the Seven Summits, check out our April profile.
