Date Climbed: May 28, 2006


Windy? Don't go up to the ridge too soon like I did! I spent a long time up there; brrr. The wind blew me flat twice and blew my pack off the ridge and down the C Couloir. Fortunately I had already made plans to glissade down; my pursuit was successful.

Sweet snow climb. Even sweeter glissade back down the NW ridge route.

Four days after our Belford-Oxford hike, we knocked off Missouri. But this time the weather took a turn for the worse and forced us to beat-feet on the descent to stay out of trouble.

Climbed Missouri, Iowa, Emerald, Belford, and Oxford. Quite an exhausting day, but some great terrain (except Oxford).

What a day. All three: Belford, Oxford, Missouri, with over 7,500 feet of vertical. God I wish I was 19 again!

2 weeks after my 1st 14er, and it's # 3. The route up Elk Head Pass is beautiful, and once up on the ridge it gets nice.

This one turned out to be an exercise in route-finding once we reached the talus. Climbed with Tom Trent.

Like Belford, kind of boring until you attain the upper ridge. Just I and my roommate this day.

Even in August that creek crossing is still deep!

The ascent was a calf burner as the climb to the ridge is steep! Once on the ridge, it is a ways to the main summit, but a pretty cool traverse. The descent was brutal as the steep slope had wet grass and we all slip many times.

Lovely alpine stroll from Emerald to Missouri via Iowa. I meant to continue with Oxford and Belford but I have no balls when it comes to afternoon thunderstorms in Colorado. A fast glissade down Missouri took me out of the danger zone well before lightning struck and my judgement scored a point! No balls it is!

bc44caesarRoute Climbed: From Iowa, Descended West Ridge Date Climbed: 10 Sep 2005  Sucess!


Continued to Missouri from Iowa. The ridge was blasted by fierce winds. I had trouble walking and was getting pelted by small rocks rustled up by the wind. The summit was quiet - I only saw three other people all day on the mountain and they were at quite a distance. I descended into the basin to the west rather than staying on the West Ridge which involved some unpleasant talus, but I was on the way down so it didn't matter too much. The entire traverse of Emerald, Iowa, and Missouri took me about 5hrs or so.

We believe our GPS system "wronged" us as it said that we did 1,300 vertical in just over a half mile... it was steep, I suppose that could be right?! Snow dusted, collected, and iced some of the rock on the ridge and the winds were brutally cold- but it was a great day for a 1st timer, a 20th ascenter, a "marathon" runner, and I myself as I closed out the Collegiates and reached the official 14er halfway point!

This was my first class 3 accent. I do not recommend climbing this route when it is all scree.

mntnplayRoute Climbed: Northwest Ridge Date Climbed: 21 August 05  Sucess!


3:00 up, up, up from the TH. There was a faint dusting of snow and a little ice on the west side of the ridge when I got there around 0815. Actually, I think the going was a touch easier below the summit towers because the dirt was cemented together. I thought the cool quartzite block 5m S and below the summit was a dirty snow bank until I went to look at it. :-)
