Water

This “secret” spot is frequented only by a few locals, due to its isolated location and difficult access. The trail consists of many steep switchbacks, and then eases out into the basin below Columbine Lake. Water is fairly scarce, but it is there. A few camp spots are also there, and tents should be moved if you plan to stay more then two days, because of the fragile tundra. A trout dinner is a consideration for the fishing fan. Only experienced mountaineers should climb the surrounding peaks.
