Teen Begins Ascent of Mt. Everest?
This is the latest report I can find about Californian teen trying to be the youngest person to climb the "Seven Summits" - the highest point on each continent. In the film you watched in class, the climbers have to go up and down the mountain over several weeks, acclimating to the altitude. The teen and his parents are taking an alternate route that doesn't involve this acclimation stage. Hopefully we'll find out soon how he's doing!
