Did Harvard - Columbia Traverse on 9/20/2023 via Columbia West Slopes and Harvard South Slopes. Trail up to Columbia via west slopes and trail down from Harvard via south slopes are both dry without any snow/ice. The traverse between the two has snow and ice in some areas with one significant snow field on the northeast aspect just before Harvard. Microspikes came in handy on the snowfield. The traverse sucks (there is no trail), and it's better to do the two peaks separately. Not your average "class 2 Sawatch" 14er day... had some class 3 and class 4 maneuvers on the traverse near Harvard.
