This Colorado Fourteener (35th highest) is one ofthe Collegiate Peaks and nearest neighbor to Mount Harvard. It was named in 1916 by Roger W. Toll of the Colorado Mountain Club. He placed club climbing registers on the Sawatch peaks, and like others before him, named a peak after his alma mater.
Mount Columbia and Mount Harvard can be summited in the same outing. The climb is long and challenging, requiring experience, fitness and favorable weather conditions.
