Tried for Oxford  Sucess!

Made the Belford summit in horrendous winds, strong enough to knock me off my feet. Got about 100 yds down the connecting ridge to Oxford before I realized that it wasn't happening. Hopefully Oxford will still be there next time I go back.

Missouri Gulch TH, Ascend Belford W Slopes to Oxford W Ridge  Sucess!

A great hike to knock off 2 14ers. During the descent we passed a guy in real trouble - he hadn't brought enough water or food for the hike. Fortunately most of us had more than we needed and saved his bacon!

A nice gulch. I liked the cabin down below at treeline. Not a real exciting hike but good views. I was the only one up there this day. That seems to happen alot?!

This is a very straight forward route. Good trail all the way to the summit. For fun, we camped a night near the cabin ruins just off the trail. We met another climber who had been harrassed by marmots all night. Apparently, they tried to drag is pack away several times.

Route Climbed: Standard Trail Date Climbed: August 20, 2004  Sucess!

Nice views, but relatively cold and snowy I thought for that time of year. We did the Maroon Bells 2 days before this and this was a warm up for the Pikes Peak run the next day.

Route Climbed: Missouri Gulch, standard Date Climbed: Summer 2003  Sucess!

This was the only peak I did this year. I was out of shape, my knee was killing me on the way down, I was getting passed by boy scouts on the way up and down, and I got drenched from rain. With Osita.

Route Climbed: Standard (West Slopes) Date Climbed: October 22, 2005  Sucess!

Snow, snow and more snow. 2-3+ feet of fresh powder above 11,000 feet, as well as a good bit of wind. I wore snowshoes much of the way, but they didn't help a whole lot. Gave up plans on Oxford after breaking the trail all the way to Belford's summit, taking 8 hours just to make it to the top. Two and a half hour descent--beautiful Sawatch views.
