image story

Dec 9, 2004 09: 52 EST
Media reported today that Chris Harris will attempt to become the youngest person to climb Everest next year. Chris is reported already the youngest person known to have climbed Elbrus.

Media writes that Chris is out to beat Temba Tsheri, "the youngest Sherpa to have climbed Everest, at age 16, in 2001. The youngest foreigner is Frenchman Bertrand Roche, who did it in 1990 aged 17."

Well, let's not forget Lhakpas sister "Doni" (sadly enough the sisters in today's top story), who was 15 when she joined Lhakpa Sherpa on her third summit last year, and became the youngest ever to summit Everest! The two sisters where accompanied by their brother Mingma Gyalu, 24.

Earlier record was held by Temba Tshiri, 16 years and 17 days, who became the youngest person to scale Everest May 23, 2001. The previously youngest woman on Everest was Dicky Dolma, India, who scaled Everest at age 19, May 10, 1993.
