Saves time, but risky  Sucess!

Great route up and saves time. Overall the ridge prior to K2 is more difficult than the rest of the Capitol route. Highly recommend if you are comfortable with exposure and low class 5 moves. Staying ridge proper has the best rock quality.

Long ridge  Sucess!

By "accident" we got on this route to avoid the snow on the back side. Well worth it. The top of the ridge is solid and enjoyable class 3-4 climbing.

Good When You've Got Snow  Sucess!

Used this route in November to avoid pockets of sugar on the south and east facing slopes.

Winter makes a visit  Sucess!

Glen Maxson and myself climbed this spicy ridge under full winter conditions after allowing a few days for things to settle from the previous storm. Camped at treeline and woke to a cold morning.
Didn't summit Capitol this trip due to longer then expected times on the ridge.
Highly recommended!!
