Traverse from Columbia to Harvard was a bear! Took our family almost 4.5 hours including some class three scrambles...no well defined trail through boulder field from Columbia to just past the rabbit ears...in the future I would definitely drop a couple hundred feet to the green valley and then headed up an easy slope toward trail along ridge below Harvard summit...we could have shaved hours off our traverse!
