Mount Columbia Trip Report (#9813)

This was my second attempt in three weeks. The first time I was driven off the south ridge 400 vertical feet from the summit by high winds and arctic temperatures. This time the winds were even worse (70MPH gusts) but I persevered!
After snowshoeing 9 miles into a base camp below Horn Fork Basin, I fought winds all the way to the summit the next day.
