|Peak:||Capitol Peak (14er)|
|Route:||Northeast Ridge from Capitol Lake|
|Date of Information:||09/10/2011|
The north/west side of K2 has some snow, but it's only enough to make you really check where you're about to put your feet. The ridge between K2 and Capitol had some frost and a little snow on the north (ascender'e right) side, but not enough to cause problems. It melted off by the time we descended. The rest of the route had infrequent, inconsequential amounts of snow, mainly in nooks where the sun couldn't get to it. As we descended, a storm came in with a very small amount of graupel.
