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.

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.
