We put in a minor attempt on Capitol via West Snowmass Creek Trail (Moon Lake approach), I stress minor as the trail breaking was quite arduous especially with heavy packs…We were going nowhere fast. The trench warfare ceased @ roughly 10,400’, approximately 4.5 miles from TH. Feel free to poach the trench, and push the trench to Moon Lake. Don’t follow the trail @ the open meadow that traverses into the aspen grove use the meadow trench.
