Made an attempt on Capitol on 6/7. Plenty of post holing on the approach, beginning at about 11,000'. Mostly full snow coverage above chasm. Ridge a mix of steep snow and exposed rock. Warm temps had the snow turning to slush by 7:30, and we turned around at K2. You'll need colder temps or bigger balls to climb this right
