Highlights

  • Mount Columbia is a Colorado 14er in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness in the Sawatch Range.
  • Along with nearby Mount Harvard, Mount Yale, Mount Princeton, and Mount Oxford, Mount Columbia is one of the Collegiate Peaks; it is named for Columbia University.
  • Due to an awful scree field located on the standard route, it's usually only climbed by those pursuing the Colorado 14ers challenge.
