Within the last few days, Jordan Romero, the 13-year-old Californian bidding to become the youngest person to successfully summit Mount Everest, arrived at the peak’s north side base camp. Team Jordan — which includes his parents and a few other team members — is now at intermediate base camp, which sits about 18,700 feet.
It’s all hiking so far, but the climb will start soon.
So far, the team is reporting all is well. You can follow Jordan on Twitter at TeamJordanR, http://twitter.com/TeamJordanR
He’s also got a Facebook site, Team Jordan on Everest.
Here’s hoping for the best, especially safety, as the team tries to tackle Big E.
