Mount Columbia is a mountain in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness, in Chaffee County, Colorado, United States. At 14,077 feet (4,291 m), it is one of Colorado's fourteeners. Along with nearby Mount Harvard, Mount Yale, Mount Princeton, and Mount Oxford, Mount Columbia is one of the five Collegiate Peaks; it is named for Columbia University. Due to an awful scree field located on the standard route, Mount Columbia is usually only climbed by those wishing to climb all of Colorado's fourteeners.
