The first ascent to this summit was made by Percy Hagerman and Harold Clark in 1909.
The mountain is situated in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness of the White River National Forest. Besides, it's one of the most difficult Fourteeners to climb in Colorado, chiefly due to its' famously exposed 'knife-edge' ridge.
This 14,130-foot (4,307 m) Fourteener is the 52nd highest mountain in North America.
The Elk Mountains range of The Rocky Mountains of North America is home to the majestic and imposing Capitol Peak.
