Youngest on Everest: Heading to Base Camp


Watch CBS News Videos Online

Jordan Romero and his team are two days into their journey to Everest's north side base camp. The team left Kathmandu on Saturday and is currently in Nyalam, Tibet at an altitude of 12,000 ft. If all goes as planned, they should reach the Chinese base camp on April 15.

Jordan has also been picking up a fair amount of press, including a BBC story, an AP video, and a video clip on CBS's The Early Show with Scott Brown's daughter, Ayla. Of course, we still prefer Bruce Barcott's April profile of Jordan for Outside.

Team Romero has also posted another phlog (below)! The auto-transcription is only slightly better this week. “Jim Jordan” should be Team Jordan. And “Everest Space Camp” – as amazing as it sounds – is really Everest Base Camp.
