slowbutsteadyBack to Belford  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 1997


Belford was my first(14ner) back in 1994. Did it again from Missouri Gulch hoping to have the weather for a chance at Oxford, but it was not to be. Met a big, fat marmot who was conditioned to the sound of snack wrappers. Opening a bag really got his attention.

Did the combo with Oxford- great weather. A nice hike but with a lot of steep switchbacks!

Belford and Oxford in the same day. Camped at the top of the switchbacks the night before and bagged both of them early the next day. Beautiful. Numbers 11 and 12.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2007


Perfect day on Belford. Started a little after 5a (parking lot was already half full) was on the summit by 8a then headed over to Oxford. Clouds built rapidly on the way down and I was concerned for the late starters, but they caught a break when the clouds dissipated as quickly as they appeared.

First solo 14er...it was awesome!

A great start to the 14er season! Good friends and good weather. A little steep at times, but we all made it. Shadow's (our black lab) first 14er!

What a great day out with friends! The return from Oxford back to Belford is brutal, but well worth the extra effort to knock out both peaks in one push. Altogether a beautiful hike on a very well-maintained trail.

Beautiful weather. The 2200 ft glissade down the northwest gully made my weekend. Perfect glissade snow.

Climbed in a fog bank. No views. These two mountains are endless and the trail was a steep one

Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2001


This was a repeat climb, as Belford was my 6th 14er, back in 1976. That time, I came in from the south to Elkhead Pass. This time I hiked up Missouri Gulch with my wife and daughter. After camping overnight, Belford made their 5th and 2nd 14ers, respectively. Had to run down to escape the rain coming in at midday, but mild weather overall.

Had planned on climbing Oxford, but due to pouring rain and very low visibility we settled for only bagging Belford.

Did Belford and Oxford in one day. A long hike, but the weather held and the views were spectacular. I suppose I'll have to revisit the valley to tackle Missouri later!

kylerlottMissouri - Belford - Oxford  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2006


Did all three in one long day. Started at 3:40am and finished around 2pm. Did Missouri first then Belford and Oxford. For the stats sounding so huge, it really wan't to bad. Personally the switchbacks at the start of the trail were the toughest part up and down. Weather held up for most the day. On Belford we followed the ElkHead pass trail to save a little elevation and then cut over too the southwest ridge on Belford. Beautiful area, definately looks worth staying a couple days up in the gulch.
