Team Jordan posted some photographs of Jordan Romero’s ascent to Mount Everest’s Camp 1. I must say, I’m a bit jealous. Still another 6,000 feet to go, but it looks like the climb is going well so far.
Jordan Romero, if you don’t know, is attempting to become the youngest person to ever climb the world’s highest peak. He’s 13. The current record-holder, a Nepali climber, was 16 when he achieved the feat. Have a look at the photos…
In their last post, the team says it is back at Advanced Base Camp, resting. This goes with the strategy of “climb high, sleep low” in terms of getting acclimated to the altitude. You’ll climb to a high spot, then go back down to rest. This happens several times throughout the climb to help the body adjust to the altitude higher up.
