Capitol this weekend 9/6-9/7

Postby LoveThisSite » Tue Sep 03, 2013 3:19 pm

I'm (almost) mentally ready to take on Capitol.. looking for an experienced climber to partner with me.
I'm an average speed hiker. General plan is to backpack into Capitol Lake on Fri, 9/6, with a summit bid on Sat.
If you are interested, let me know..

Any chance of pushing this to Sat/Sun instead? I would like to hit up Capitol this weekend as well.

I'm also looking for a partner for Capitol for 9/7-9/8. I'm a very slow hiker but a decent scrambler...I will want to give myself plenty of time on this one though!

I can make Sat/Sun work. I live in the Boulder area.

It looks like I can't leave Boulder until around 2pm, which will put me at the trailhead around 6pm. Assuming 4 hour hike to the lake, that will put me @ the lake by 10pm or so. Not ideal for sure. I anyway pretty much can't sleep while backpacking, so it isn't a big deal for me.

Ideally we'd hit K2 summit around sunrise.. so probably around a 5am start?
