Mount Harvard is the third highest peak in Colorado. It is located in the central Sawatch Mountains in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area. The largest concentration of 14,000-foot peaks is in this area, including Harvard, Columbia, Oxford, Yale, Huron, Missouri, and Belford. Harvard is connected to Columbia (14,073 ft.) by a long, sharp ridge, and the two mountains are often climbed together.
