Following Jordan Romero’s attempt to climb Mount Everest: He and his team are making progress. Here’s the latest from Team Jordan and jordanromero.com:
The team made it to Camp 2 last night. According to the GPS information it took them almost 9 hrs to complete this stage. It was approximately 2.0 km but the elevation gain was significant (~600 meters). Keep in mind, true climbing/walking distances are always a lot further than GPS point to point distances!
Pretty good progress. The really hard part is about to begin, but so far, it seems like Jordan, 13, is on his way. Will he become the youngest to ever reach Everest’s summit? We should know pretty soon. Next stop: Camp 3.
