My wife and I climbed Capitol on 9.23.12. Crux of the route was getting around K2, several snowy spots to negotiate. We took the middle option to get around, looked like snow would be encountered on any of the options shown in the route description. There were light flurries on the way down but didn't look like too much new accumulation. No real snow on any other part of the route.
