On May 22, 2010 Jordan Romero stood on the summit of Everest at age 14 becoming the youngest to climb Everest. Is this too young? China has gone as far as to create a ban on anyone that is under 18 from attempting to climb Everest. I think this is just too young but that is my opinion. What do you guys think?
To each their own! I think if he is old enough to "want it" he should be able to climb Everest. It is up to his parents to provide him with enough information about the risks/rewards associated with the ascent. Then, once he has the information he can decide for himself.
