Three-year-old climber the youngest to summit Italian mountain

Jackson Houlding, 3 and a bit, has become the youngest person ever to climb the 3308 metre Piz Badile, on the Swiss-Italian border.

The very earnest and very cute looking mountaineer was part of a family expedition – which included sister Freya, 7, dad Leo and “uber-mum” Jess.

After possibly the most adventurous family holiday in history, the Houldings set off on a mountaineering expedition that would strike fear into most adult climbers. And they returned with the photos to prove it.

Father Leo posted these remarkable photos of the group on Sunday, depicting a “family ascent of the 1000m North ridge,” which he called “the finest route of its grade I’ve yet to climb.”
