Oxford is a tough climb after having already summited Belford

My second attempt at Oxford, this time a success. I was foiled in '04 by approaching storms and a busted shin while coming down Missouri. This time the weather held long enough and the snow was 90% gone. Great glissade on the way down to save the knees. This completes the Sawatch 14'ers for me.

DIGITAL CAMERA FOUND en route -- it still works!!! If you think it might be yours, contact me and give some identifying details (photos / what photos are on the camera / type of camera, when climbed, etc). The first photo had some identifying details (a photo of some writing on a pad, but I think not enough to track you down).



Email: my last name (proulx) at pizero (the greek letter + arabic numeral) dot colorado (the university) dot edu.



Nice weather, but windy, and it deteriorated badly as I approached Belford. Hi to other recent summiteers, ktiffany22 (whom I met on Saturday when I did Missouri) and Paul and Brian from Brackett Hall '97 (who signed the summit log on Sunday).

Summited, along with Belford, with good friend and fellow SPer, Alan. Our original plan was to do Missouri, but there was too much snow at it's base and we did not have crampons or axes. Dodged storms all day long.

Camped at Missouri Gulch Trail and started off in the rain. I had to catch some zzzz's during early morning rain on the trail to Missouri. I first ascended Missouri and then headed up the basin to the saddle between Oxford and Belford. I was beat and a storm was brewing but another dumbass motivated me to go for the summit of Oxford first. The storm receded and I was on the summit of Belford celebrating three in a day. I made it back to camp with some sore knees, but it wasn't too bad. 14 1/2 miles and 7400 feet of elevation gain in 9 hours. Not too bad?

Had a great hike summiting both Mt. Oxford and Mt. Belford on a beautiful sunny day. The views to the south from both peaks and the airy saddle between them is awesome, especially the views of Mt. Harvard, Iowa Peak , Emerald Peak and Missouri Mountain.

Hiked up the 2.5 miles to the foot of Belford to camp overnight. The next morning, we ascended Belford and then did the traverse to Oxford. Very nice views from the top of both peaks.

On our return over Belford we got rained on, snowed on, and walked through some 45-50 MPH winds.

3 hours of straight uphill bushwack and scramble. We made it! I actually enjoyed the non standard route. We had great weather and were able to summit Belford also. Returned via Elkhead pass and connected back up with the Pine Creek trail to camp. Great loop if you have the time and weather!

Long day- the re-ascent to Belford was pretty tiring, and we took about 10 hours total from the Missouri Gultch trailhead (one member of our party had some knee problems on the descents, but we weren't moving as fast as usual at any rate).



Spectacular weather the entire day- cloudless skies (even in the afternoon!), a little windy on the summits, and not too crowded.

Climbed this mountain, along with Belford, in a relatively severe and cold wind storm. Did the thing with Aaron Johnson, and we did NOT hang around on the summits! Including Missouri Mountain these three make for a nice day or two in the mountains...

Long day. Took 8 hours to do both Belford and Oxford. I saw clouds starting to build while on the summit of Oxford (not good). It seemed to take forever to get back to Belford. I came down the West Slopes route (sort of) instead of going back over Belford. It made for a quicker descent since the clouds seemed to be threatening but probably not advisable under better conditions.

Whew, what a day. Glad I made it. I really had my doubts at some times. I have to take more time to acclimate myself here. We did Belford last year and didn't have the time nor the inclination to do Oxford. I'm kicking myself now that we didn't! Camped in the night before to around 12,000 (first night out in CO from 598' in IL). Thought I was going to die once or twice (just feeling sorry for myself!)--it makes the summit all the more rewarding when you have to overcome the obstacles of bad attitude and the like, doesn't it?

A long hike up the Missouri Gulch and then around the Elk Head Basin. We took the more senic route since we tagged Belford last Sept.. The ridge traverse was a little more of an undertaking than I had thought. It is a steep descent off of Belford on good rock and then a long shallow climb back up Oxford. The Oxford summit is the middle peak as you approach the three Oxford peaks. A fun, but long day.
