Local youth mountaineer, Jordan Romero, is on his way to climbing the World’s 7 Summits. He wants to share his experience with other youth and so created the 7 Summits of Big Bear Youth Challenge. Following the 7 Summits of Big Bear developed by Ted and Heather DeVito, Jordan is doing his best to get kids outdoors. (Adults interested in the same challenge – check out Ted and Heather’s site, SevenSummitsofBigBear.org)
“Climbing the 7 Summits, I have learned so much about eating right, being healthy, and the benefits of exercising in the outdoors,” says Jordan. “I want other kids to feel what it’s like to set a goal and then stand on the top of that mountain,” he says with wisdom beyond his 12 years.
The 7 Summits Youth Challenge gives kids of all ages a chance to hike the 7 highest peaks in the Big Bear Valley. Jordan will lead the hikes and give everyone tips about training, nutrition and goal setting.
