No Summit Out of Sight: The Youngest Person to Climb the Seven Summits
Romero (21) began climbing the tallest peaks on each continent at age 10. He climbed Mt. Everest at age 13 and at age 15 he climbed Vinson Massif, his final summit to become the youngest climber in the world to complete the seven summits.
He was inspired to climb the tallest mountains of each continent when he saw a painting in the hallway of his school that had the seven continents’ highest mountains. Romero is now trying to climb the highest point in each of the 50 US states.
