Youngest On Everest: CNN


Team Jordan is resting at advanced base camp, where Jordan woke to find himself covered in a light snow. The team also managed to avoid a reported ice avalanche yesterday on the North Col.  A Hungarian climber was reported missing after the avalanche by Alan Arnette via Duncan Chessell (Chessell Adventures) via Jamie McGuiness (Project Himalaya).

Team Jordan also appeared on CNN yesterday. In the interview, Jordan said the summit push could take “a couple weeks or a couple years but, you know, I'm determined to do it.”
