This small Korean expedition made a winter ascent of Everest in 1987/88 placing two people on the summit. During the descent Ang Rita held the Korean’s fall. This was also Ang Rita’s fourth ascent of Everest and the first-ever winter ascent without the use of supplemental oxygen. In English although the rough translation makes for an amusing read. The stamp on the title page, which I’ve seen on other copies, may be Seung-Mo’s or the publisher. Uncommon.
