Beautiful day on Capitol. That could very well change today though. The only patch of snow on the route was the ledge going under K2. On our hike in we talked to many people who turned around because of this, but if you are comfortable climbing up and over K2 then you're good to go.

Large rock slide on the south side of the peak occurred around noon. Be careful, watch your steps, and watch the weather. We had cloud cover the entire day but nothing was producing anything close to storm clouds.

If you'd like any pictures, PM me. I did grab a shot of the snow patch under K2
