Everest was definitely the highlight of the Seven Summits. You feel like you’re standing on top of the world, and it’s just a magical feeling to be up there together as a family.

We worked pretty hard on the mountain, both before and after training. We spent 50 days in the Himalayas, giving ourselves time to acclimatize and to prepare ourselves for the summit day.

Of course, we’re always taking precautions and were aware that many people have died on the mountain. But we got up there in good weather on a perfect day.

The Everest trip was definitely the highlight of the whole Seven Summits quest, says : Jordan Romero

Jordan Romero (born July 12, 1996) is an American mountain climber who was 13 years old when he reached the summit of Mount Everest. Romero was accompanied by his father Paul Romero, his step-mother Karen Lundgren, and three Sherpas, Ang Pasang Sherpa, Lama Dawa Sherpa, and Lama Karma Sherpa. The previous record for youngest to climb Everest was held by Temba Tsheri Sherpa of Nepal who was 16 years old when he reached the summit in 2001. Romero was inspired to climb the tallest mountains of each continent when he saw a painting in the hallway of his school that had the seven continents' highest mountains.Upon successfully hiking the Vinson Massif in December 2011 at the age of 15 years, 5 months, 12 days, Romero became the youngest climber in the world to complete the Seven Summits, a title previously held by George Atkinson. After this experience, Romero wrote a novel for children called "No Summit Out Of Sight.
