Flagged Portaledge at the Base of Zenyatta Mondatta

Flagged Portaledge at the Base of Zenyatta Mondatta (view)



Photo by Richard Heinrich

This is a photo of my BFPs ready for lift-off on my solo ascent of Zenyatta Mondatta on the Southwest Face of El Cap.

See that white bucket hanging beneath? That's Chongo's kitchenette which I used to make my coffee each morning. Unfortunately, when I tried to lift off, the bucket got hung up under a rock, and I had to rappel down four hundred feet to release it!
