Original post (Feb. 29, 2016): We climbed Fuji-san in one day on July 17, 2014. With me were two young boys ages 8 and 10.

I was just wondering whether anyone knows the age of the youngest person to climb Fuji-san in one day.


Aug. 23, 2019 update: According to his mom, 4-year-old Logan scaled Fuji-san on his own, along with his family (shown above) via the Fujinomiya Trail on July 5, 2019. Congrats, Logan!

I was overtaken by a bunch of what looked like 6 year olds when I climbed Fuji in 2014. Was I embarrassed? Of course not. After all, they were younger than me. The two ladies in what looked like their eighties that passed me however...

Good question, Charles.

I don't know the answer, but perhaps another site visitor to this page does.

Cheers...
