Inspiration Report

At 13-years-old, Jordan Romero has a high and lofty goal: to be the first youngest person to climb Mount Everest in Nepal.

Together with his father and stepmother, Romero is an avid climber who has already traveled from his hometown of Pasadena, CA to climb six of the world’s seven highest peaks.

“To get up off the couch and do things. To set goals in life and to live an active and healthy lifestyle.” (

Being a young climber, Romero has needed to apply for special permits to bypass age restrictions, but a permit may be harder to get for Everest.  In addition to the permit, Nepal charges a whopping $35,000 per person to climb the mountain. 

With his sights set high to accomplish the impossible, we can all be inspired to achieve our own dreams.
