Montana MattColorado 14er finish!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2009

Montana Matt

My last "official" Colorado 14er. Finished them in just over 1 year because we were moving in August 2009. I'd still like to go back to Colorado some day (now living in Southern Oregon) and get North Maroon and El Diente.

Capitol is by far one of the best mountains I've ever climbed. Great rock, incredible scenery and a long approach (which I like). My ultra-running friends ran in and climbed with me. Summitted with Eric Lee, Chris Gerber and Ben.

Took our helmets off on a rest stop on the way down, when a rock came hurtling by. The helmets went back on VERY quickly!

Date Climbed: Oct 2, 2010

Wobby

Climbed via Capitol ditch/ridge direct. Definitely a fun climb, beautiful weather (sat on the summit for two hours in T-shirt), beautiful aspens, had the mountain to ourselves all day.
Was definitely an overrated climb (I would say class 3), absolutely no class 5 (not even on the ridge direct). The knife edge was cool, but really easy. Overall a great climb, but not as difficult as its made out to be.

Took the ridge from Daly saddle which made for a great route. Took the Avalanche Pass loop back. With Craig and Heather and millions of mosquitos.

Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2010

noahs213

Summited and started over to Snowmass from the top of Capitol at 9:30 with Kiefer Thomas, Steve Gladbach, Mike Fynie. Spent 8 hours on the most nightmarish rock you can EVER imagine. A dangerous line. Had to bail due to several factors, one it was getting dark. We were about .2 miles and 500 or so feet from the top of North Snowmass and finishing the ridge. Heading back soon to finsih it.

Mike Smith and I made it up via the standard ridge bypass from Daly saddle to K2. A serious undertaking for me - my butt is sore from scooting across the Knife Edge. Had an angry stomach from the previous night's meal. Not a cloud in the sky all day.

Noah (winter8000m), Steve Gladbach, Mike Fynie and myself tagged the summit at 9:00am on an ambling route that veered back & forth tween the stnd and the ridge direct.

We left the summit at 9:30am and started the traverse over to Snowmass under impeccable weather.

Pete CastriconeRidge Direct from Daly Saddle  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2010

Pete Castricone

With Goldielocks. Single day push using the Ditch Trail then up the ridge direct. Knife edge was a letdown (from my expectations) after the ridge scramble. Nearly got wiped out by some idiot kicking a giant rock toward my head. If you're not an expert scrambler with a deep respect for other climbers, you don't belong on this mountain.

More exposed ridge scrambling than I had expected, making for a long-ish day. The bridge was out on the creek trail, so I had to ford on the way back. Sweet mountain, though. Trip report

Date Climbed: Jan 17, 2010

Kiefer

So far, a tremendous start to 2010. Steve Gladbach, Mark and myself summited via W. Snowmass Creek via Knife Ridge Route. Ran into John Prater and Bill Wright on top! Nice surprise! 3 hours from K2 to the summit. More snow then expected. Set 4 pieces of pro and 2 belays. Serious stuff in winter.

Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2009

Kiefer

Went up with my friend, Glen. We climbed the alternative class-4 ridge direct to K2. Heavy snowcover and veriglass on the ridge made this stretch into a truely alpine, ass-puckering climb. Didn't summit because we ran out of time. Downclimbing in the dark would be begging for an accident.
2 hours-50 minutes from Daly saddle to K2.
Great winter beta though! ;o)
