Notes: Round trip is just from Cap Lake to peak and back. It took 11 hours to get from camp, summit, and then back to the Capitol Lake TH. Ascent time is from camp at Capitol Lake, sticking to ridge the whole way from saddle instead of following standard route into the basin. Roach lists the elevation gain at 2800; I think we probably picked up another 200 feet easily by sticking with the ridge. On descent, we followed standard route from K2.
