译文:美9岁男孩成功登顶6962米南美最高峰

译者:perple tree  时间:2014-01-11

来自南加州的九岁男孩成为有史以来登上阿根延阿空加瓜峰峰顶的年龄最小者;该山海拔22,841英尺(6,962米),是西南半球的最高峰。

泰勒·阿姆斯特朗,约巴林达人,与他的父亲凯文还有西藏的夏尔巴人拉旺顿珠,在圣诞前夜登上阿空加瓜峰峰顶;拉旺顿珠还曾多次登上珠穆朗玛峰。周五,他们离开阿空加瓜峰时精神状态良好;该山极为陡峭,气候酷寒,曾有一百多位攀登者丧生在此。

泰勒在向美联社描述山顶情况时说到:“在那里你可以真切的看到大气层,云层就在你的脚下,非常冷。那儿完全不像孩子画中山的样子,山顶差不多跟座房子那么大,接着是一道陡坡。

从山下给登山者运行李的尼古拉加西亚说:“每年有7000人获准攀登阿空加瓜峰,只有30%能登至峰顶。”通常14以下的儿童不允许登山,因此泰勒家必须说服阿根廷法官并保证他能安全完成登山壮举。

泰勒说“任何小孩都能做到这样,他们所需要的就是下定决心去尝试。”为了准备这次登山,他连续一年半一天锻炼两次。他还举办资金筹集活动,不仅为了支付费用,还为杜氏治疗中心筹措资金,这为肌肉萎缩研究提供了资金援助。

泰勒父亲透露:“大多数人以为是父母要求泰勒去登山,但事情恰恰相反,不是迫不得已我也不会去,是我妻子要求我去照看泰勒。”

阿空加瓜峰前一位登山记录保持者是来自科罗拉多州,圆石市的马修莫尼斯,他在2008年登峰成功,当时十岁。

泰勒八岁时就登上了坦桑尼亚海拔19341英尺(5895米)的乞力马扎罗山;成功登顶阿空加瓜峰之后,他决定踏足七大洲最高峰。

A 9-year-old boy from Southern California has become the youngest person in recorded history to reach the summit of Argentina's Aconcagua mountain, which at 22,841 feet (6,962 meters) is the tallest peak in the Western and Southern hemispheres.

Tyler Armstrong of Yorba Linda reached the summit on Christmas Eve with his father Kevin and a Tibetan sherpa, Lhawang Dhondup, who has climbed Mt. Everest multiple times. They were in fine spirits Friday as they left Aconcagua, whose sheer precipices and bitter cold have claimed more than 100 climbers' lives.

"You can really see the world's atmosphere up there. All the clouds are under you, and it's really cold," Tyler said, describing the summit to The Associated Press. "It doesn't look anything like a kid's drawing of a mountain. It's probably as big as a house at the summit, and then it's a sheer drop."

Only 30 percent of the 7,000 people who obtain permits to climb Aconcagua each year make the summit, said Nicolas Garcia, who handled their logistics from down below. No one under 14 is usually allowed, so the family had to persuade an Argentine judge that Tyler could safely accomplish the feat.

"Any kid can really do this, all they have to do is try. And set their mind to the goal," said Tyler, who worked out twice a day for a year and a half to prepare for the climb. He also held fundraisers, not only to defray the cost but to raise money for CureDuchenne, which funds muscular dystrophy research.

"Most people think we as parents are pushing Tyler to do this, when it's completely the opposite. I wouldn't climb it if I didn't have to, but my wife makes me do it to keep watch on him," his father said.

Aconcagua's previous record-holder was Matthew Moniz of Boulder, Colorado, who was 10 when he reached the summit in 2008.

Tyler had already climbed the 19,341-foot (5,895-meter) Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania at the age of 8, and with Aconcagua conquered, is determined to reach all "seven summits," the highest mountains on each of the seven continents.
