Even with these two mtns. climbed together, I still summitted Oxford seperately, Belford twice obvisouly. There were a few people up there. Belford looks nice from Oxford's summit.

Good weather.

Takes about an hour round trip from Belford. Pretty easy rigde line with no real exposure. Only risk would be storms, as I know people who have dropped directly off the summit to escape. The always ends with bushwacking of some kind.

Summited at 8:50AM from Belford summit, only two people on top, the sun broke through, stayed 'til 9:37, then back across the saddle and down Elkhead Pass trail, very few people, beautiful wildflowers, back to the TH at 12:41PM. My 17th & 18th 14'ers and another beautiful Colorado morning, sweet!!!

My first 14er! It had to be Oxford because my hiking partner had already done 20 and refuses to ever repeat any. We ascended the long, gentler way via Elkhead, which means I hit 14000 and was THIS close to summitting Belford, but my companion had already done Belford so we had to trudge on and get her a new peak. The ham and cheese sandwich I had on the summit was the best sandwich of my life. On the return trip, I got to then hop over and bag Belford while my hiking partner napped. So 2 14ers my first day! A good start, I'd say.

This was second of three in two days. Climbed from Elkhead Pass up to near Belford and then the ridgeline traverse. Sumitted around 11:30 in the strong cold wind.

After ascending and descending Missouri mountain, we took the class 1 route up the ridge that connects Missouri and Belford. We didn't summit Belford then, but continued on the Oxford's summit first. 2/3 for the day. Great weather!

I hiked this one with my sister's friend, Kate. The day started out mostly cloudy, but the clouds briefly broke up when we neared Oxford's summit. That didn't last very long, though, and it was pretty windy and cold up there. Climbing up the saddle back to Belford was the toughest part of the hike, but Kate didn't have too much trouble with that. We rested on Belford for a little while, until we heard thunder to the north, then we headed on down.

The initial ascent from trailhead does not allow for any warm up time. Going up to Belford made me want to stop before even going a mile. It was better once I was warmed up, but don't expect a nicely accomodating beginning like many of the other 14er approaches. Very nice once you get above treeline.

Best views of the valley to the east that I've seen. A great completion to a long day. 7 14ers in 4 days. Not too bad. Trip report to come

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).
