CLEAN: Everest teen's father defends decision to climb

The father of a 13-year-old American who this week became the youngest person to climb Mount Everest on Wednesday defended the controversial expedition, saying it had gone perfectly. Jordan Romero reached the summit of Everest early Saturday, accompanied by his father Paul, setting a new record as the youngest ever to scale the world's highest peak. Some mountaineers have said it was irresponsible to take such a young climber onto a mountain that has claimed the lives of many older and more experienced climbers.
