16 year old British climber George Atkinson summited Everest yesterday morning and became the youngest person to climb the 'seven summits'.
Commenting yesterday on George's Blog, his mother Penny said:
"George has done it. He reached the summit at about 8.15 Nepali time. It sounds as if the weather is good with great views over Cho Oyu."
The previous 'seven summits' record was held by 17-year-old American Johnny Collinson.
