Climbed July 17 2004 from the capitol creek trailhead (second attempt). Camped by Capitol Lake and spent most of the day climbing, the weather is kinda crazy in the area and Ive found mid july is better for climbing then August with the rain. The knife edge isnt too bad and its a good idea to stay low on the face on the way up. The trail is pretty well marked. Technically it isnt too bad but one must be cautious, there are a lot of loose rocks after the knife edge. I have some pictures of the knife edge, just shoot me an e-mail if youd like them.
