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!

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.

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. :-)

Early start for this long trail; determined to reach summit with Larry, since we had failed in October unprepared for snow. Challenging summit compared to other 14ers but beautiful overall. The mountain makes you earn your way up! We got into some snow in the gulch on the way back and sure were glad to be off the summit at that point and time. It rained most of the way back.

We climbed up from Missouri Gulch, leaving our overnight gear cached at the junction, then continued up to the saddle. The ridgeline was fun and the scrambling at the end was enjoyable. Great climb and first of three in two days.

This route is pretty tough. There is a lot of finding your own way. I suggest gaining the ridge early rather trying to cut a diagonal. Good climb.

We ascended the north ridge after camping by the remains of the old cabin just below treeline on the Missouri gulch trail. After ascending we descended most westerly chute described in Roach's 14ers. From there it was on to Oxford and then Belford. Beautiful weather, great day.

The road to this TH was brutal. Cool hike when it got to the ridge.

I reached the summit of Missouri with my cousins Shane and Trent after a long jaunt across the west ridge. This is number eleven on the 14er list. Met a group from Colorado Springs on the way up.

A gorgeous hike - Missouri Gulch is beautiful - especially at sunrise. My favorite 14er yet. Plus, the early snow was great - glissaded down 900 vertical feet from the summit to the gulch below. Then on to Belford... trip report to come soon
