Missouri Gulch  Sucess!

Windy? Don't go up to the ridge too soon like I did! I spent a long time up there; brrr. The wind blew me flat twice and blew my pack off the ridge and down the C Couloir. Fortunately I had already made plans to glissade down; my pursuit was successful.

C Couloir  Sucess!

Sweet snow climb. Even sweeter glissade back down the NW ridge route.

Missouri Gulch TH, Ascend NW Ridge  Sucess!

Four days after our Belford-Oxford hike, we knocked off Missouri. But this time the weather took a turn for the worse and forced us to beat-feet on the descent to stay out of trouble.

Long Day!  Sucess!

Climbed Missouri, Iowa, Emerald, Belford, and Oxford. Quite an exhausting day, but some great terrain (except Oxford).

NW Ridge  Sucess!

What a day. All three: Belford, Oxford, Missouri, with over 7,500 feet of vertical. God I wish I was 19 again!

Missouri Mountain  Sucess!

2 weeks after my 1st 14er, and it's # 3. The route up Elk Head Pass is beautiful, and once up on the ridge it gets nice.

Route Climbed: Northwest Ridge Date Climbed: June 2004  Sucess!

This one turned out to be an exercise in route-finding once we reached the talus. Climbed with Tom Trent.

Route Climbed: West ridge Date Climbed: August 2001  Sucess!

Like Belford, kind of boring until you attain the upper ridge. Just I and my roommate this day.

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: July 2002  Sucess!

The ascent was a calf burner as the climb to the ridge is steep! Once on the ridge, it is a ways to the main summit, but a pretty cool traverse. The descent was brutal as the steep slope had wet grass and we all slip many times.

Route Climbed: E I W Date Climbed: June 2005  Sucess!

Lovely alpine stroll from Emerald to Missouri via Iowa. I meant to continue with Oxford and Belford but I have no balls when it comes to afternoon thunderstorms in Colorado. A fast glissade down Missouri took me out of the danger zone well before lightning struck and my judgement scored a point! No balls it is!

Route Climbed: From Iowa, Descended West Ridge Date Climbed: 10 Sep 2005  Sucess!

Continued to Missouri from Iowa. The ridge was blasted by fierce winds. I had trouble walking and was getting pelted by small rocks rustled up by the wind. The summit was quiet - I only saw three other people all day on the mountain and they were at quite a distance. I descended into the basin to the west rather than staying on the West Ridge which involved some unpleasant talus, but I was on the way down so it didn't matter too much. The entire traverse of Emerald, Iowa, and Missouri took me about 5hrs or so.

Route Climbed: West Ridge (From just below Cloyses Lake) Date Climbed: September 10, 2005  Sucess!

We believe our GPS system "wronged" us as it said that we did 1,300 vertical in just over a half mile... it was steep, I suppose that could be right?! Snow dusted, collected, and iced some of the rock on the ridge and the winds were brutally cold- but it was a great day for a 1st timer, a 20th ascenter, a "marathon" runner, and I myself as I closed out the Collegiates and reached the official 14er halfway point!

Route Climbed: North Face Couloirs Date Climbed: August 2004  Sucess!

This was my first class 3 accent. I do not recommend climbing this route when it is all scree.
