Did the Bel/Ox duo  Sucess!

Climbed both Bel and Ox today under a cloudless sky but where the weather was quite breezy. Crossed several small snow fields but had the poles to help out. Only met 2 other folks the entire day! The summit ridge over to Oxford was just as advertised. Loved the steep part then the gradual part.

I recommend doing this, but the standard Belford trail is very tough on the knees! If you have the energy, head up Elkhead Pass, as that looks like Class 1 all the way.

Via Missouri Gulch  Sucess!

Did with Belford. Easy ridge between the two but the reclimb of Belford was hard at the end of a long day.

Bel-Ox-Emarld-Iowa-MO  Sucess!

Over 8,000 vertical ft. and a lot of miles, but the scenery made it worthwhile.

Belford and Oxford Combo  Sucess!

After summiting Belford, headed down the ridge and over to Oxford, arriving 50 minutes later at the summit. Enjoyed 20 minutes on top of Oxford because the weather was so great, and then made the slog back up to Belford. That ridge back to Belford was- as one of the other hikers on the summit put it- a little piece of evil! My legs were not happy campers after the steep slog up to Belford's summit.

Triple  Sucess!

Third summit of the day after Missouri and Belford. About 1/4 mile before resummiting Belford a storm rolled in and got pelted with freezing rain and 40mph winds. Most unpleasant... fortunatly it didn't last too long.

Oxford and Belford  Sucess!

Great day! Got started a little after 5a, stopped on Mount Belford for a few pics, and headed straight over to Mount Oxford.

Glad I got an early start as the lot was already 1/2 full (or was it 1/2 empty?) by 5a and the clouds were getting pretty thick by 11a. The late starters caught a break though as the clouds broke up and then it became sunny and HOT! And with the quad busting, knee popping switchbacks, I was glad to only have 1.5 mi to my car by the time the heat kicked in! :)

Belford/Oxford Combo  Sucess!

Took a power nap on the top...would have made for a great overhead shot considering there were 5 people and 2 dogs napping on top as well. (You need it to conquer the return to Belford)

Belford Oxford Pecks  Sucess!

Finally found enough clothing to make the perpetually windy traverse from Belford to Oxford. Bagged Pecks Peak on the return - it's recommended if for no other reason than a peculiar view of Harvard popping up between the Belford/Oxford saddle.

Belford/Oxford from Missouri Gulch  Sucess!

Beautiful weather. The 2200 ft glissade down the northwest gully of Belford made my weekend. Perfect glissade snow.
