    At the first hint of a willing ear, Aidan Gold leapt with stocking feet onto his parents' couch, pointed to photos of mountains hanging on the white wall and began the tale of his adventures as a high-alpine mountaineer.

    His accounts of reaching high peaks in the shadow of Mount Everest, traversing glaciers and rotten-rock cliffs with 6,000-foot exposures and the details in which he recounts them are incongruous with his 8-year-old voice and 4-foot, 60-pound stature.
