He is under 18, and if his parents approve it I AM ALL FOR IT! It is not his first high altitude climb. Back in Ukraine (where I am from) and even in my homeland (in USA) some kids start smoking cigarrettes/weed and doing other drugs by the time they are 10, it is considered cool in their circles. I would rather have role models like this kid around. Running to get your soccer ball across the street can end your life, if he understands the consequences of his actions/his parents understand they should be able to do it without any negative judgment from people who can only dream about accomplishing something this big.
I admit I am jealous, and wish him to succeed.
Climbing Everest takes a lot more than $. IMHO
