The striking Capitol Peak. One of Colorado's most difficult 14ers in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area.
My friend from work Jason.
Standard ascent route is the obvious ridge which has a section called the knife-edge.
Cattle drive! They do not stop for hikers.

It rained all night, cloudy and overcast in the morning making an attempt at the summit out of the question. Still a fun excursion into Colorado's spectacular backcountry.

I can't slam dunk, but I can jump impossible gaps on rocks!
Your friendly belayer, tips greatly appreciated.
