Ascent Trip ReportThis was a repeat climb for> me, although one I had looked forward to doing, and a first for my daughter. It was a long day. We left the N. Cottonwood Creek TH (9,900 ft.) just before sunrise. It took just about five hours to hike up into Horn Fork Basin and ascend the south slopes and SW ridge of Harvard. There was a lot of run-off, and lots of wildflowers. It took another five hours to drop off Harvard's east ridge to roughly 12,400 feet in the Frenchman Creek basin, and begin climbing Columbia's north slopes. (See Columbia TR). Harvard was just as thrilling as I remembered it.
