Mountaineer – Youngest Person Ever To Climb The World's Seven Summits
Jordan began his quest at the age of nine when he saw a painting of the seven summits in a hallway at school. After that, he was inspired and unstoppable.
At age ten, Jordan conquered Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, making him the youngest person in the world to have achieved this feat. Jordan went on to climb Denali, Elbrus, Aconcagua, Carstensz Pyramid and the highest peaks in North America, Europe, South America and Asia. At age thirteen, Jordan climbed the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest, again earning him the title of youngest person in the world to do so.
Finally, on December 24th, 2011, Jordan completed his goal of climbing the seven summits when he reached the top of Mount Vinson Massif in Antarctica. This officially earned him the distinction of being the youngest person ever to climb the world’s seven summits.
Aside from climbing the world’s most amazing and challenging mountains, Jordan devotes much of his time to speaking to young people at schools across the U.S.A. Jordan’s public speaking engagements are a critical component of his “Find Your Everest” campaign, which encourages kids to kick their junk food habits and discover their passions.
Jordan has much more planned for his upcoming adventures – climbing the seven summits was just the beginning.
