From Belford  Sucess!

Descended Belford Gulch. We found the remnants of an old miners trail just below timberline which we followed as best as we could for the descent.

from Belford  Sucess!

did all three that day, Belford, Oxford, Missouri. That last hump back over Belford was HARD. But I still wish I was 19 again. So much energy back then!

Route Climbed: Belford Traverse Date Climbed: June 2002  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Belford Traverse Date Climbed: August 2, 2002  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: From Mt Belford summit via Missouri Gulch TH Date Climbed: Saturday August 20,2005  Sucess!

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!!!

Route Climbed: Missouri Gulch/Elkhead Pass Date Climbed: July 11, 2005  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Traverse from Mt Belford Date Climbed: August 2, 2005  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: traverse from Belford Date Climbed: July 30, 2005  Sucess!

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!

Route Climbed: West Slopes via Mount Belford Date Climbed: July 24, 2005  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: West Ridge (Belford traverse) Date Climbed: September 2003  Sucess!

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.
