Default Zeus hops substitution

I am looking at a clone recipe for Deschutes Red Chair that calls for Zeus bittering hops. My LHBS doesn't have any Zeus available, and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a replacement. Thanks!

byo.com says Columbus can be substituted. Anyone care to confirm this?

CTZ--Columbus, Tomahawk, Zeus. It's the same hop.

Zeus and Columbus have the same brewing profile - or close enough to cause a lawsuit.
However, the plants are different. Columbus breaks dormancy a lot quicker and has green stems, while Zeus is a bit slower and has reddish coloring in the bines. I think the trade really messed up when they let these two meld into CTZ, because Columbus does better in the south and Zeus prefers the North. As far as brewing goes though; they are very similar
