(FILES) In this photograph taken on June 8, 2010, Nepalese climber Pemba Dorje Sherpa (L), who holds the record for the fastest ascent of Mount Everest, poses with his nine-year old son Tseten Sherpa in Kathmandu. A nine-year-old Nepalese boy training to become the youngest person to climb Mount Everest has scaled a 6,000-metre (19,700-foot) peak, a report said November 5, 2010. Tseten Sherpa climbed Mount Ramdung in eastern Nepal on November 2, 2010, his father Pemba Dorje Sherpa told the Himalayan Times daily, saying he wanted the child to become the youngest person ever to reach the summit of Everest.
