JBL continues his Seven Summits for Kids climbs and has started training for his next two mountains: Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro and South America's Mount Aconcagua.
He'll begin his Kilimanjaro climb in about six weeks. Located in Tanzania, it's the highest mountain in Africa. He plans to use this 19,334-foot peak climb as training for his third climb: Aconcagua.
JBL said Aconcagua, nicknamed "Mount Death," has an estimated 30 percent success rate. He's training very seriously for the 22,841-foot climb of Aconcagua. It's the highest mountain in the Americas, and is part of the Andes mountain range in Argentina.
