He began mountain climbing at age six.
After months of training, Armstrong climbed Mount Whitney in a single day on July 26, 2011. At 7 years old, he might be the youngest boy to climb the mountain, with a 6-year old girl, Eva Luna Harper-Zahn, summiting in 2018. Starting at the base camp, his 11-mile hike to the top, with an elevation gain of more than 6000 feet, took him 7 hours and 50 minutes.
Although Mount Kilimanjaro had a minimum age limit of 10 years old, Tyler obtained a special permit to climb to the top. He took the Lemosho Route, which took him eight days of climbing round trip. In those eight days, he hiked 48.5 miles and gained 10,644 feet of elevation. On July 1, 2012, Tyler was the second youngest person to reach the top at the age of 8.
After reaching the top of Kilimanjaro, Armstrong started to look for a new challenge, which he found in Argentina. Aconcagua was his new target, and being the youngest person to climb it was his goal. As a training exercise, he climbed Mount Baldy on August 17, 2013, as part of the fifth annual Climb to Cure Duchenne. After months of preparation, Armstrong was ready for his journey to Argentina. On December 7, he left the United States. He spent his first couple of days trying to get a special permit because the minimum age for climbing Aconcagua is 14. After obtaining a special permit, Armstrong started his climb on December 15, taking the Polish Glacier Traverse Route. On December 24, 2013, Armstrong reached the top and broke the record for being the youngest person to climb Aconcagua, at the age of 9, making headlines all over the world.
At the age of 12, Tyler was denied a permit to climb Everest in the spring of 2016. Instead, he planned to climb Denali. In June 2016, he went to Denali and reached the summit with his dad.
He has made some effort to summit Mount Everest, however he could not obtain a permit in 2016 and 2017.
Tyler grew up with his brother Dylan in Yorba Linda, California.
