chicagotransplantvia Missouri Gulch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 23, 2008


Climbed with Rkymtn, second time up this one. Trail conditions were good, not too much snow. Good boots and gaitors are all that you need, but you may want yaktrax or something to deal with the hardpacked snow. It was a bit too cold and windy to desire to head over to Oxford, so we headed back.

Climbed with chicagotransplant. It was clear, but blustery. The desire to hit Oxford was there, but the timing and conditions weren't. I hope to get back for both Oxford and Missouri.

Summited this peak on the way out as an after-thought after taging Missouri, Iowa & Emerald. A long day. 12.5 hours RT.

Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2008


Climbed the standard route. Colours are pretty much at peak in Clear Creek/Missouri gulch. Nice climb, but the predictable crowd dissuaged us from following the pack over to Oxford. It'll probably be another two years before I contemplate another 14er.

Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2008


First hike in a while. Smoker's lung (stupid habit fostered by grief this summer) and lack of acclimatization led to a tougher effort than expected. Still, up and back in 7 hours, summiting by 10:30 a.m. Weather kept me from Oxford.

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2008


Great trail and steps, thanks to CFI. Yes, the switchbacks are (as Roach says)"memorable" and "relentless!" I liked the nice, solid rock formation at the summit - first I've seen in eight 14ers. Descent through Elkhead Pass - GREAT VIEW from the saddle, and much gentler slope was kind to my knees!

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2008


My wife and I hiked Mt. Belford (also Mt. Oxford) from the Missouri Gulch trail head for our 4th and 5th 14ers and first double. We got caught by grapple snow on the return to Belford and then rain as we descended via Elkhead Pass.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2008


Hiked up the west slope via the Missouri Gulch trail. Planned on heading over to Oxford, but got a later start than hoped for and the weather was starting to look a little iffy so just did Belford and Oxford will have to wait another time.

rleclair1st of 2008!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 31, 2008


Another glorious day in the Colorado high country. Fellow SPer Patrick Vall and I had plans to climb Missouri Mountain but this years snowfall left a huge snowload on the mountain as well as nasty cornices at the top. Figured the better part of valor was to save that one for a better day and get in some trail time to Belford. Few snowfields but a very nice summit day - breezy and cold though...

We climbed the northwest couloir at 8am and summited at 10:30. We said our vows, exchange rings and then ripped a double helix down the soft buttery couloir! It was by far our best 14ner descent. We got married in the grandest cathedral of all!
