|Peak:||Capitol Peak (14er)|
|Route:||Northeast Ridge from Capitol Lake|

As stated already, no snow on the Ditch Trail to Capitol Lake. All stream crossings can be accomplished without removing shoes/boots if one looks carefully enough for the crossings. Approximately five small, remaining snowfields left. Most can actually be avoided if necessary. I did not use any traction or ax. Firm snow in the early morning and minor postholing up to mid-calf in the late morning. Current pics available if it helps your decision making process. Everything else is gravy!
