GeorgeJamesPecks Peak to Belford  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2007


Left the Missouri Gulch Trail at the Mount Belford\Elkhead Pass trail junction, headed east up the slope of Pecks Peak, then traversed the ridge to Belford's summit. A windy day, but no clouds anywhere made for great views everywhere. Headed over to Oxford and came back down the standard Belford trail.

Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2007


Climbed both Bel and Ox today under a cloudless sky but where the weather was quite breezy. Crossed several small snow fields but had the poles to help out. Only met 2 other folks the entire day!

I recommend doing this, but the standard Belford trail is very tough on the knees! If you have the energy, head up Elkhead Pass, as that looks like Class 1 all the way.

mnicholsLong day on Belford  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 9, 2005


We were there for the first snow of the season in 2005. The snow began while we camped the night before, partway up the trail among the switchbacks. It really got going as we went for the summit, causing us to lose the trail and eventually just beeline for the summit. The snow was about 8 inches deep on the way down. Luckily we were somewhat prepared for these developments. This was my first 14er.

It was a really windy day! We were going to go for Oxford, but it was too bad up on top of Belford, so we returned after summiting. Great trail, too bad the hail was pelting us the entire time.

Summited Belford all by itself and spent too much time watching goats to try Oxford....

Due to the weather, we missed just the summit when I was 3 years old. Now at age five, I completed the climb and Oxford on the same day too.

Great climb with Eric Lee and Andy Gerber. Ascended via Missouri Gulch TH, hit Oxford, and returned via the Elkhead Pass trail. Nice, with a bit of weather.

Climbed up from Missouri Gulch on the steep CFI trail. No class 2 anywhere. Linked this with Oxford and Missouri, another nice day in the mountains.

Steep hike, but it was nice getting a good look at Hope Pass from the top.

Over 8,000 vertical ft. and a lot of miles, but the scenery made it worthwhile.

Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2007


Started on the Missouri Gulch TH at 6:15 and summited Belford at 9:05. Spent fifteen 15 minutes on top and then made the trek on over to Oxford. Had good weather (although it was really hot up there!) and decent views.

My story sounds pretty common - have done Belford twice, the second time for Oxford but had to turn around because of weather - some day I'll make it to Oxford!

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2002


This had been my first time climbing Mt. Belford -- an approachinig storm denied me and my team the neighboring peak, Mt. Oxford. Grrr!! I didn't know it then, but I would try many time thence to re-take it to get to Oxford and all were unsuccessful due to rain and snow. But I'll get there one day :D

During a rest stop in the descent, I accidentally stepped on my glasses. Totally unbelieveable!!

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.
