The trail levels out for a moment and resumes climbing steeply on talus and rocks right up to the base of the summit block.
Recommend hiking in to that point (about 3.5 miles), camping and summiting next day. You can traverse over to Colombia but would make for a very long day, and looked pretty rocky. Wow, that’s a busy road this year – cars coming up until I finally drifted off after 10.

Started off with a plan to summit Mt Columbia but no signs posted anywhere (beware, even at the Trailhead) and I missed my turn at a fork in the trail about 4 miles in.

Trail is very well maintained and marked. Really fun class 3 scramble at the top. Weather was fantastic. The scramble for the last 30’ to summit adds the last bit of excitement of an overall great hike. After that it gets steeper and rockier but its still a clear trail and not especially difficult (yet).
Otherwise, great views (one of the more interesting Sawatch 14ers in my opinion) and a fun but tiring day. The hike up was beautiful and the valley bellow Mount Harvard was amazing!

Very long walk and gradual ascent until reaching the first scree field at about 12,500 feet, 5+ miles into hike. The last mile was a pretty brutal push.
Last mile (of 7 total each way) was a real challenge. The natural line leads you up to a massive drop-off.
