At the age 13, Jordan Romero on Saturday became the youngest climber to reach the peak of Mount Everest.
We had a story in Sunday’s News Tribune about the accomplishment of the Big Bear, Calif., resident.
Before him, the youngest climber to scale Everest had been Temba Tsheri of Nepal, who reached the peak at age 16, according to the Associated Press story.
But today we are getting the first photos of Romero on top of the world, at 29.035 feet above sea level.
Which leads me to these questions:
- Is 13 years too young to be trying feats like this?
- Would you let your 13-year-old climb Mount Everest?
- Should there be a minimum age limit for Mount Everest climbers?
