Congratulations to Jordan Romero!

As you probably already know, climber Jordan Romero has just completed his sixth of the "seven summits", Everest. An extraordinary feat for anyone; mindblowing for someone only 13 years old. While the ethics issues raised by young people engaged in extremely risk-filled endeavors are complex, I would like to take a moment to congratulate this extraordinary young man.

A month back, I read a very interesting article on Jorden; it provides a well-written portrait of him, his family, and the ethical issues involved. It's available online here: Outside Magazine, April 2010.
