Hey Great Post! It is interesting how Everest pops out these little morsels every so often to remind us all of it's past.

Sounded like a grand experience--by the way, what happened to the artifacts you found?

I might write a piece and link back here. Great story!

Hi Jason,

It is amazing that all these things are still lying about on the mountain - a nice, humbling reminder of the past!

As for the artifacts, all the ones we recovered in 2001 are now in Washington State. We had them on display through the Washington State Historic Society for a while, but eventually they came down.

There are plans, however, to get them up again on display - perhaps even visiting the new Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum right here in Golden, Colorado.

It would be great for them to see the light of day once more!


The Adventurist

Hey Jake,

You know, that amazes me that no one has asked to display these items.

The Bradford-Washburn Museum would be a nice selection..

My personal belief..The Smithsonian...

Ha,ha..just a thought.

Great piece. I admire your sense of adventure and I'm sure I would have eaten more than the biscuits. I'm curious about the spaghetti!

Wow, I saw the picture of the old gear and I was like, what? I'm sure it was durable and all but these things have changed majorly now.

As I mentioned previously, water is great at keeping the body cool.
