Ascent Trip ReportIf I remember correctly, I camped at the trailhead, due to late hour.
Sunday morning I hiked up high in Horn Fork Basin and climbed to the Harvard-Columbia Ridge, where we had given up in Sept. 1983. I headed toward Columbia, staying near the top of the ridge. Finally I had to give that up, drop 200 ft. on the east side and treat it like Windom and Sunlight. Bypassing the rabbit was a little rotten. Afterwards
I made the summit, 14073 ft. and went down.
