Mount Harvard Trip Report (#2779)

  • Signed By: Larry
  • Date submitted: August 19, 2003
  • Date(s) climbed: 8/12/03

My son and I and 2 friends summited. It's a nice peak. However the weather was deteriorating and one of my friends descended the wrong side of the peak. We didn't know what had happened to her and called the Chaffee County Sheriff. Colorado Search and Rescue arrived and found her on a different trail and retrieved her by horseback. She was fine. If you are climbing in Colorado be sure everyone has a map and is oriented to the hike or is with someone who is. Also buy a Search and Rescue pass for $3. It lasts a year and supports this dedicated and well-prepared group.
