Britton Keeshan

Britton Keeshan (born December 1, 1981), is one of the youngest persons to climb the tallest mountains on all seven continents in a feat known as the Seven Summits. He accomplished this feat on May 24, 2004, when he successfully summited Mount Everest at the age of 22 years and 179 days old. Keeshan held the record until June 2005 and is now listed as fourth on the list. [ [http://7summits.com/7summits_statistics.php The 7summits statistics: the Kosciuszko list, Youngest] ]

Keeshan is the grandson of Bob Keeshan, the children's performer better known as Captain Kangaroo. He had a close relationship with his grandfather, and he buried a photo of the two of them at the summit of Mount Everest.
