Steady 40-50 mph wind the whole time I was above tree line! Unbelievable. Had to lean into the wind, and I was still getting blown off my feet at places. Climbing Oxford and back to Belford in this wind was something else!

Started at sunrise (6:45 am) and reached Belford summit at 10 am. Reached Oxford summit at 11 am. I tried to get Missouri too, but got stormed off. Oh well, it'll be there.

Tenth of 10 fourteeners in 6 days. #18 overall.

After reaching this summit it was quite a relief because we had gotten Belford and Missouri previous to it that day. Heading back to Belford was a grueling 700 vertical ft but it was another relief making it back to Belford. Then the fun downclimb began which did wonders for my knees. This was my first day bagging three 14ers in one day :) and a long day it was...about 13 hours.

wayneaflickRoute Climbed: Elk Head Pass from Missouri Basin Trailhead Date Climbed: August 8, 1997  Sucess!


When we climbed Belford we didn't climb Oxford because of a summit storm. I climbed Oxford by walking all the way to Elk Head Pass. It's long but easy. Climbing Oxford from Elk Head Pass is just a matter of following Belford's South Ridge to the Oxford-Belford saddle and crossing over. Except for the distance its quite easy. On the down climb I did cross over Belford and followed the standard route down. I was hallucinating on the way. I saw a dinosaur (a large rock), a panther (a small aspen tree), and several skunks ( small rocks).

I love the valley of Missouri Gulch. Dusting of snow that day and winds that never stopped.

7th summit of Nolan's 14. Only 45 minutes from Belford. Descended off trail south of the saddle down to an avalanche chute above the Bedrock Falls aid station on the Pine Creek trail. It is getting dark. On to Harvard.

Go back down behind Belford to Elkhead pass, makes for a much gentler descent.
