Threaded the needle during a succession of passing thunderstorms. Harvard had a beautiful trail and interesting scrambling sequence to the summit. Loved it!

Beautiful hike. Made the trip with HM and Hootie. Sucking wind a little after going from sea level to 14k in less than a day. All in all a great hike with fantastic views.

Vagabond Manifesto

This is one of the most beautiful fourteener hikes. Views of Columbia, Yale, and Princeton on the way up. It seems like more effort should be required to reach the 4th-highest peak in the Lower 48. Climbed Columbia the previous day.

Started out as a beautiful day, but when we summited we heard the first booms of thunder then it started to snow. Overall a wonderful hike, fantastic views and sharing it with two good friends.

Summitted first that day in 4.5 hrs from Cottonwood, but headed down quickly due to early storm clouds forming, made it back just in time before the lightning. Third peak in as many days after having done Massive and Huron.

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2010


Had a fun hike up Harvard > Columbia. Apparently spending 5 weeks in Phoenix (near sea level) and then driving up to the mountains and immediately climbing two 14ers is not proper acclimatization. In the end it made the trip a bit more challenging, which was great!

Packed in and camped at the Horn Fork primitive sites. 6am start from camp - muddy trail early on - saw no one until on the summit around 10am. Great day!

Date Climbed: Oct 18, 2009


Great trip in the Sawatch on a Bluebird, clear as hell day! Uncompaghre Peak was visible in the San Juans. Light winds, pleasant temps. Trail was very icy going up, turned slushy on the way down. We were gonna do Columbia as well, but decided we wanted Chinese food in Leadville instead!

There was an attack marmot on top of this peak and it stole my day pack! I had to chase it for about 30 feet before it dropped it and ran away.

shknbkeWinter ascent-Horn Fork  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 2, 2010


We were likely the first group to summit the 5th highest peak in the lower 48 in the new decade! It was "easier" than expected as the trailbreaking to our camp at treeline wasn't back with a broken track to beyond the Kroenke Lake junction. Got blasted by spindrift and low vis for the last couple hundred vertical to the summit. The scrambling is a bit tricky with snow as there are fewer options. Hung around for Columbia the next day.

5/21/04-First ascent was as a dayhike, and it was an epic! Endless postholing on the way down, ran out of water, was hallucinating near the end. Glad I've gained some experience since then!

Had to do this to complete the 5 highest in the U.S. Why, I don't know, it seemed like a good idea!

Very long hike, we started around 4:45am made to Harvard around 8:30, but traverse to Columbia was somewhat long and painfull, but somehow we made it, beating thunderstorms and rain.
