I went to Everest in May 2005 (Also Denali in 1999)to get a chance to visit base camp and climb to camp 1. While in the ice fall I found a small faded triangular orange flag with the letters 77 KEE and just now decided to Google it...31 years later I am saddened to know that I can not return it to Ko Sang Don...His Family?

Re: unbelievable

If you want to return it to his wife and daughter, I can arrange for that to happen. Contact Young Chu, owner of Mad Rock climbing gear, or send me a PM.
