Youngest Briton to climb Everest dies in Alps
Last year, two British kids skied, sailed, and biked through North, Central, and South America, en route from the north pole to the south pole
. They made it the whole 180 degrees
, but as you can read in the articles, they almost died several times. You may enjoy reading an interview about that trip
They had already climbed to the top of Everest at 19 years of age.
They were named Adventurers of the Year for 2008
by National Geographic.
They died this weekend
, January 10, 2009, climbing in the French Alps.
