Date Climbed: Oct 22, 2011


Second ascent, solo via Frenchman Creek with PT 13374 and Harvard. Snow covered boulders below the "rabbits" were a bit tedious, but otherwise not a bad tour of the Frenchman Creek drainage on a nice fall day.

A never ending heap of talus best hiked in firm snow. Took 2 tries to summit out of the sheer monotony of the long east ridge.

pacojgarzaAlone on Columbia  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2011


I went up Columbia after summitting Harvard and Princeton the two previous days and made it to the summit in 3 hrs & 40 min from N. Cottonwood, the weather turned cloudy, chilly and blustery as I hit the summit ridge. I never saw anyone else on Columbia that day. The descent was very fast on the steep slopes.

This was my last 14er to climb in the Sawatch. It was a nice, long hike which was worth while.

vbeckman74Ass Kicker  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2006


I did Columbia with Harvard. The snow, scree, and talus was an ass kicker. Start early if you're going to do both. I did it in 9 1/2 hours, which is a little faster than usual.

Date Climbed: Mar 20, 2011


Climbed as part of a 14ers.com winter gathering alongside Stephanie and Fletch and about 15+ other people. EXCEPTIONALLY windy on the ridge but calm on the summit. Saw a herd of elk of maybe 40-50 animals crossing drainages to the east.
This was a very enjoyable day with great people!!

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2010


Climbed Mount Harvard and Mount Columbia from North Cottonwood Trailhead after a beautiful camp at 11,440 feet in Horn Fork Basin. This was my second ascent of Mount Columbia. My first ascent was in September of 2004 during/after a snow storm.

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2010


Threaded the needle during a succession of violent thunderstorms. Took the low traverse which was miserably loose, as was the descent to the main trail. Would be a better snow climb.

Vagabond ManifestoSoutheast Ridge, from Colorado Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2010

Vagabond Manifesto

Very windy day. Great route for solitude--no one else (and no trail) on this side of the mountain. Herd of mountain goats above treeline, right on the ridge. Pay attention on the way down, it's easy to end up off-route.

Steep climb up scree slope, very high winds on ridges, another safe and successful 14'er, so overall a great day.

Great day, love the approach. Fairly bad erosion and scree-skiing on the way down.
