13-year-old to climb Mount Everest

Monday, May 10th, 2010

“Thirteen-year-old Jordan Romero partnered with ESRI to share his Mount Everest climb with the world via geographic information system (GIS) technology. The Jordan Romero Web site features an ESRI GIS mapping application that integrates Web services to track Romero’s journey. The application lets the public see Team Romero’s location in near real time, explore daily tracks, view distance and elevation statistics, and browse weather and route information. The application also gives geographic context to social media—for example, Flickr photos and Twitter posts from the team throughout the trip,” according to a press release issued today.

The thirteen-year-old Romero is already a mountain climbing pro, having already climbed six of the “Seven Summits,” the tallest mountain on each of the seven continents. Joined by his father, Paul Romero, and his stepmother, Karen Lundgren, the trio left for Everest on April 5 and expects to reach the summit some time this month. The trio have reached all six summits together. The young Romero is aiming to be the youngest person ever to summit Everest, which would beat the current record by three years.
