Capitol Peak – 7/30/07

July 30, 2007
Capitol Peak

Did not make the summit here.

I got to the trailhead about 7:30pm the night before. I hiked in the 7-odd miles to the lake at the base of the mountain, threw down a sleeping pad and bag, and got to sleep sometime after 11pm. It was cold. I woke up at 4am and was moving in about 10 minutes.

View from pretty high up:

The summit ridge. I turned back from where I took this picture because it was getting late:

Taken on the way back down:

I was exhausted and slept a long, long time when I got home.
