Harvard & Columbia
Harvard South Slope - Class 2
Columbia - Traverse from Harvard - Class 2
We started hiking at 5:00am and summited Harvard at 8:30am. After a half hour on the summit we made our way to Columbia via the traverse. We summited Columbia a little after noon and spent another half hour on the summit. We made it back to the trailhead by 2:45pm. Our day covered 14.8 miles and 6450 vertical in a little under 10 hours with breaks. The weather was perfect and the views were amazing. We were also very happy we did not climb Columbia's steep and loose west slope route.
