It looks like Maxime Chaya has managed to inspire more Lebanese. Ralph Baz is only 22 and “is seeking climb the world’s highest mountain peak, the Everest (8,848 meters), next year to become the youngest Arab climber to reach the highest mountain top”. [Naharnet]
He already climbed Baruntse mountain in Nepal this past weekend and plans to climb Nepal’s Cho Oyu mountain next. He also has his own blog to update everyone on his journey. Too bad there are no pictures yet uploaded.
Nonetheless, good luck to this young man and i hope he does climb Everest next year!
Note: The youngest man to climb Everest is a 13 year old American. [Link]
