All in all a beautiful day. Outstanding views on the way to the summit and on top. My wife and I only summited Belford as it began to get cloudy, so we decided not to go for Oxford and risk being stuck between the two peaks in a storm.
I climbed this with my son Patrick. It was uneventful except for those darn switchbacks coming up from Clear Creek. We didn't do Oxford because it started snowing just before we reached the summit.
What a beautiful hike in the fall - colors are great. Trail is nice - no talus hopping. Summited 11:15 am and lightning prevented us from going on to Oxford that day.
Climbed Mt. Belford on 5-4-02, little or no snow all the way to the top, very windy from tree line on up. Didn't have enough gas to get to Oxford this time, I would suggest packing in and establishing a high camp. We'll Be Back!!
morning summit, around 9:00, good conditions,continued on east to oxford.
Surrounding slopes look ideal for mountain skiing
Easy hike with my small dog Sneakers!
Great hike, pace yourself if also doing Oxford.
