      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

He's doing the NE Ridge cuz the regular route has a 16 yrs age limit. But he has his lucky kangaroo testicles so he should make it. He's fricking 5'10" 160 lbs, hella big for 13.

Actually that's the North Col Route he's doing. The NE Ridge has been climbed through the pinnacles, but nobody has completed the route. If he did that it would be a FA as well.

 

In any case there's all kinds of rad climbing a 13 year old could be doing. Possibly too much pressure from the parents who want their own notoriety?

Just when you thought Paris et al had maxed out all possible avenues for vapid media whoredom, this kid's parents lay down a new "high" point.

 

“This was not my idea; he’s provided the inspiration and motivation to keep it going,” Paul Romero wrote recently in an e-mail message from base camp. “Jordan is taking us on the Seven Summits quest and we are merely facilitating his wishes.”

 

He meant to say, "And we, being stupid rich assholes, couldn't say no to little Jonny's little wishes."

 

Idiots. Let him work a shit job, save his money, and get to see the world on his own two feet.

Do you think the kid needs adult supervision for these trips? I'd be more than willing to work for minimum wage if all expenses were paid for to help "keep an eye" on the little guy while he scrambles around.

Fuq, what an Amazon! I was that size when I was 35 years old! :shock:

Now, not so much. I've added 2 lbs/year on average since then... :cry:

I think that's exactly what he doesn't want. I hate it when people try to "keep an eye" on me when I am climbing just because I am under 18.

 

However, I agree that this is just another publicity stunt. If he really cared about climbing, he'd work on some new routes in his local alpine area.

It's not so much about the supervision as it was a plea to take me with!

while i am very impressed that the kid had the endurance to summit... what i think will be truly amazing is a young (18 yrs or less) un-guided, unsupported alpine style ascent of Everest. Routefinding, carrying your own shit, and showing the true attributes of an alpinist without a guide service doing it for you...

Maybe if he covered himself in bacon grease and butter, to fight off the frost nippy. And he can lick himself for calories. 2 birds, 1 stone.

What if I climbed Diedre naked alpine style so many times, over the course of a dew days. That I gain an equal amount of totaly vertical mileage to climbing Everest!

 

Im too poor for this kind of shit....

With the line ups/clusterf'ks i've seen on Diedre, it will take you more than a few days to put up that vertical mileage.

Have no fear, BBC says his resume includes an ascent of Kilimanjaro, so he is/was qualified to climb Everest... stupid people and their need for glory
