A boy from Southern California is planing on becoming the youngest climber to ever reach the summit of Argentina’s Mount Aconcagua. Aconcagua is a formidable mountain standing at 22,841 feet. It is the highest peak in the western and souther hemispheres and is one of the Seven Summits. Temperatures on the mountain routinely drop to minus 20 degrees Celsius.

The boy will be accompanied by his father and plan on summiting between December 26 and December 29. However, Armstrong family must first get the local courts to approve a special hiking permit for the fourth-grader since the age requirement to climb Aconcagua is 14.
