Thunderous summit  Sucess!

Did Oxford first, then returned to summit Belford just in time for a thunderous hailstorm that lasted all of 2 minutes.

Belford Oxford combo  Sucess!

Unrelenting high winds all day made this hike more challenging than normal. Great day for pics if I could hold on to my camera!#14.

Winter ascent  Sucess!

Much longer mileage and elevation gain in winter due to road closures, but shanahan96 and I were fortunate to find a broken trail to tree line and were able to make good time on our winter ascent. Started to really snow on us so we decided to skip Oxford.

Long Day  Sucess!

Came from Missouri and went the long way due to poor route planning. I ended up all the way back at the standard junction instead of going over Elkhead pass. Didn't have the energy to go over to Oxford so I'll need to come back.

Belford/Oxford/Missouri  Sucess!

Started at Missouri Gulch and climbed the northwest ridge route of Missouri. Continued to Elkhead pass and climbed to Oxford traverse. Climbed Oxford and then doubled back to hit Belford. This was a long day. 14+ miles and over 7000+ feet of elevation gain. Make sure weather forcast for the whole day is good and leave before dawn.

Missouri Gulch Belford/Oxford  Sucess!

I've got to confess this summit could take my 2009 award for Least Inspiring Summit. At any rate, it was nice to take a breather here before continuing on to Oxford. Partner: Deb.

Belford and Oxford  Sucess!

Wife, dog and I climbed the duo from Missouri Gulch. Great day except for the pricks that had the dog off leash that started a fight with my dog, but oh well, what do you expect!? Rained on us on the way out...
