Jordan Romero, the 13-year-old attempting to become the youngest to summit Everest, landed in Kathmandu late Wednesday, around midnight local time. Team Romero is staying in the city to organize their gear and work with sherpas before crossing the Chinese border into Tibet.

Jordan was featured on CNN Newsroom this morning, and will reportedly appear on CNN International later today. For more on Jordan and his record-breaking efforts, check out Bruce Barcott's April 2010 profile, Into Teen Air.
