Currently a 16-year-old Nepali boy holds the record of being the world’s youngest climber of Mount Everest.

But Romero is not after setting climbing records. He says its part of his goal to climb the highest mountains on all seven continents.

[Jordan Romeno, 13-years-old]:

“I was 9-years-old in a fourth grade in my school and I was walking down the hallway and I saw a painting on the wall of the Seven Summits and that’s what made me want to climb them, I looked at it all the time and my father picked me up from the school one day and I said I want to climb these seven summits, and that’s it. That’s how I started.”

YouTube – Teen Climbs Everest – VOA Story

May 25, 2007 — Americans have a new real-life, adventure hero to talk about — a California teen who has climbed the world’s highest peaks with her father.

Sir Edmund Hillary made the first successful summit of Mt. Everest on 29 May 1953. Today, Samantha Larson, 18, can say she has been there, too.

Larson on May 17 became the youngest American to reach the spectacular peak. “It was a beautiful day so the views were fantastic,” she describes, “and it was an incredible feeling getting to the top.”

After graduating from high school, the California native took a year off from school to train and accomplish the feat.

In doing so, she also became youngest person to climb the “seven summits,” the tallest peaks on each continent. Her stepmother, Janet Moore says, “When we found on Wednesday night our time (May 16), the first feeling is, ‘Fantastic! she’s made it!”

Apparently it is not over yet for this climbing family. Even her younger sister, Emma, is planning a trip. “I’m climbing the first of the seven summits in 2009, Kilimanjaro. I’ll be 10 years old,” Emma plans on following in her big sister’s steps.
