13-year-old Californian youngest to top Everest

BEIJING - A 13-year-old American boy became the youngest climber to reach the top of Mount Everest on Saturday, breaking the former record as part of his quest to climb the highest peaks on all seven continents..
 


A spokesman for Jordan Romero said the boy's team called him by satellite phone from the summit of the world's highest mountain, 29,035 feet above sea level.

"Their dreams have now come true. Everyone sounded unbelievably happy," a new statement on Jordan's blog said Saturday morning.
 

Also Saturday, Nepali mountaineer Apa Sherpa broke his own record and climbed Mount Everest for the 20th time, said Ang Tshering Sherpa, chief of the Asian Trekking Agency.

Romero ? who climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa when he was 10 years old ? said he was inspired by a painting in his school hallway of the seven continents' highest summits.

"Every step I take is finally toward the biggest goal of my life, to stand on top of the world," Jordan said on his blog earlier.
