Satyarup Siddhanta, IT professional from Kolkata has become world’s youngest climber in the world at the age of 35 after scaling Mount Sidley in Antarctica.
Satyarup scaled these peaks between 2012 to 2019 and became the only Indian to scale seven summits and seven volcanic summits.
In a statement, Satyarup close friend has said “After a night halt at the camp, Siddhanta will start for the base camp that is at about 2,100 metres. From there, he will take a special flight for the camp in Union Glacier,” he also added “It took him 10 hours to reach the peak from the base camp.
On December 15, 2017, Siddhanta even scaled Vinson Massif (or Mount Vinson), Antarctica’s highest point, to become the fifth Indian civilian to complete climbing the tallest peaks in each continent. Veteran mountaineers said the speed with which Siddhanta, an asthmatic in his childhood, achieved the feat, made the achievement more remarkable.
