Climbing Mount Everest at 22 Years Old
Ever since he was a child, Teodor Glomnes Johansen dreamed of reaching the top of the world’s highest mountain—Mount Everest. At 22 years old, he set out to achieve that dream and thereby become Norway’s youngest climber to summit the “roof of the world.” But an avalanche mid-climb derailed those plans. Not one to give up easily, Johansen is determined to give it another try. Armed with an even stronger resolution, and his best friend alongside him, the adventurer sets off to take on the peak once more.
