Niall Desai, a 3-year-old from Dallas, celebrates after reaching the top of Aspen Mountain earlier this summer. The Desai family visit Aspen each summer and young Niall was following in the footsteps of his siblings who all achieved a simialr feat at a young age in Alekh, Nyra and Coco. According to Natasha Desai, Niall’s mother, Niall is the youngest documented Ajax hiker yet who hiked the entire way unassisted. Wrote Natasha: “When asked if it was hard, he said ‘no—it was easy.’ I like to say he did it for the baby in every family. It is a big win and extremely important for the youngest to have a lifetime of bragging rights.”
