cdevenney84Combo - bad trail and sore feet  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2013


Harvard was a pleasure, the traverse was fun, but the "trail" coming down Columbia sucked. Worst trail I've seen on a 14er by far - I can't believe it's the standard route. There were people all over the side of the mountain looking for it, and once we did find it, it was thin and steep with bad erosion. Expect to fall on your ass half a dozen times. Honestly, do Harvard and skip Columbia unless you are determined to do all the 14ers.

With Katie and Megan, both 11. Camped in Horn Fork Basin. Great conditions -- and always nice to climb a mtn named after your employer....

Had a tent near Harvard/Columbia trail fork and this one was a great Mountain, storm almost chased us from the summit.

September has got to be the best time of year to hike in Colorado. Today was the nicest weather I have ever had on any mountain at this altitude. Pretty much, as Sarah says.

Ack!!! I love September in Colorado!!!! What a beautiful day. Azure sky, yellow willow and aspen, orange tundra... Enjoyed Tuaca with lunch on the summit. Chilled out for dinner at Eddyline, drinking their heavenly Inner Glow Red Chili Porter. Hell yeah!!!

Made it to Harvard, had to give up trying for Columbia too. I just can't camp at 11,500 when driving in from Omaha.

Backpacked up to Hork Forn Basin and enjoyed a night of camping before heading up to Harvard around 5:45. Summited at 8:15 and enjoyed the summit for 1/2 hour, arrived back at the car by 1:15. Beautiful area, great trail, and the little scramble at the top was a lot of fun!

My first 14er in the Collegiate Peaks! We camped up in Horn Fork Basin the nights before and after this trek, which made for a very enjoyable trip, as it's absolutely beautiful up there. I'd highly recommend to anyone.

Great morning for a 14er. Nice and warm and not too much wind. The snow around treeline was a pain as well as the hundreds of downed trees but it wasn't too bad. 3.5 hours up and 3 hours down.

Second ascent, this time solo from Frenchman Creek with PT 13374 and Columbia. First time I was up Harvard (2006) was in a snowstorm with zero visibility, it was nice to finally enjoy the summit view after all these years!

Starting to get antsy to just finish the 14ers. Harvard was OK. I can't believe I talused over the top of Columbia again. The connecting 4th class ridge is unremarkable.
