Carter Dallas is a two-year-old who has ‘climbed’ his way into the record books. Together with his parents, Carter has become the youngest person to reach Mount Everest base camp.
Carter was on his dad Ross’s back when the two of them, together with his mom Jade, completed the hike. The base camp is located 5,364 meters above sea level.
Reaching the base camp is often associated with altitude sickness in even those who are extremely experienced climbers. According to Ross, although both he and Jade felt it, Carter was fine.
“We both got slight altitude sickness but he was absolutely fine!”
Ross isn’t just a proud dad trying to boost his kid’s accomplishment. Medical staff were on hand to do a check on Carter.
“There were two medics at the village before base camp and they tested his blood to check he was fine, his results were way better than ours – they were amazed!”
Although the trek was a spur-of-the-moment decision, little Carter did practise breathing techniques with his parents before they departed.
