A teenager from California, US, has become the youngest guy to scale the peak of the tallest mountains on every one of the seven continents.
Just 15-years-old, Jordan Romero reached the summit of Mt Vinson Massif located in Antarctica on Saturday, Dec. 24, 2011.
It was the final summit of the tallest mountain that Jordan conquered, after going on an expedition six years ago.
His team, which also comprises of his father and stepmother, are confident of completing their descent back to base camp later on Sunday, Dec 25, 2011.
This is not the only record the intrepid teen has broken, as a 10 years old; Jordan climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa. When he was 13, he climbed Mt. Everest, the world's highest mountain.
On Saturday, Jordon called his mom, Leigh Ann Drake, to confirm that he had conquered Mt. Vinson Massif by reaching its peak.
By doing so, he broke the previous record set by British climber George Atkinson, who completed the said expedition at the age of 16 in May, 2011.
Meanwhile in a post at his ‘Find Your Everest’ page Jordon has made it clear that there would be no revelry until the team has concluded its descent.
Russia's Mt Elbrus in July 2007, Argentina's Mt Aconcagua in December 2007, Mt McKinley in the US in June 2008 and Indonesia's Carstensz Pyramid in Sept. 2009 are the other peaks scaled successfully by Jordan.
