    I checked out the pics of the descent on Christy’s website. An excellent ski descent, but there was a rappel on the descent. I didn’t realize that Davenport or Dawson did rappels on their descents of this peak. If they did not, then this descent is not done in a similar or better style than the first descents, and although admirable, should not be counted as a complete descent. Does anyone know if Davenport/Dawson rappelled, or if there are fixed standards for claiming descents in the sport?

    The style of the earlier descents of Capitol was matched, it is indeed the first female descent of all of the 14ers. Excellent, congrats. Alger
