Capitol Teaser Pico

(Last Updated On: April 14, 2011)

Many of you know that I skied Capitol yesterday. What a peak! I am so happy to have it behind me!

I am surviving on about 2.5 hours of sleep in the last 60 hours. My thoughts are unclear, and I’m still trying to process what just happened. I feel like I’m walking around in some sort of hazy dream world.

What I do know is this: Skiing Capital would not have been possible without my partners Jordan White (jcwhite), Jarrett Luttrell, and Matt Kamper. I owe all of them so much, especially Jordan for all the patient rope-work on the ascent. Big congrats to Jarrett who made the first snowboard descent from the summit and who has just 1 more 14er left on his tick list before becoming the 1st to snowboard all of them!

With the snowpack shaping up the way it was this year, I was doubtful I’d even make an attempt on Capital. Add that to spending the entire winter trying to get my knee stronger from last season’s ACL repair… I didn’t know if my knee was even going to let me do big 14ers like this. But, it all started coming together in mid-April. And I knew then that I was going to do everything possible to get this peak done.

I am far too tired to put together a trip report tonight. I will try my best to get one up tomorrow night. For now, you’ll have to deal with these teaser pics. Thanks all 🙂
