Triple Crown Day: Oxford, Belford, Missouri  Sucess!

Beautiful Summer day. Climbed a few steep pitches off of the beaten path for fun. Climbed with Brent Wessel.

Second summit of the day  Sucess!

From the summit of Belford, we headed over to Oxford via the connecting ridge. We reached the summit just as the last rays of sun were beaming over the western horizon. It was absolutely stunning. Instead of going up and over Oxford and back down the steep switchbacks, we took the Missouri Gulch trail down in front of Missouri. We had to cross a couple snowfields, and crossed the stream 3 times. Most crossings have rocks that you can step on to navigate across the water, but Ember did get her feet wet as one of the rocks rolled. Niko made both peaks with ease. Both class 1 climbs.

Belford Oxford Combo  Sucess!

Hopped on over to Oxford after tagging Belford with Ben and Andrea. Pretty windy on top, so we didn't stay for long for going down towards Missouri. Decided not to do Missouri and finished a good long, fun day.

With Belford, No Missouri  Sucess!

Summer solstice hike with my wife and my friend Jesse Sumrak. Our initial goal was to tag Belford, Oxford, and Missouri but I was feeling pretty tired when we arrived at the junction to Missouri. Started at 3:15 am. Summited Belford at 6:15 and Oxford at 7:45. Super cold wind with a beautiful sunrise. Coming back from Oxford back up to Belford was a little miserable. 14er #15

From Belford

Very windy traverse. Many on Belford thought it might be dangerous, but it wasn't; just cold.

West ridge from Belford  Sucess!

#1 9-6-15 Mit Yz. The bitterly cold strong wind which hammered us unceasingly on our ascent to Belford did us no favors en route to Oxford. But summit winds were a bit gentler. About one hour to here from Belford. Views were wonderful.

From Belford  Sucess!

A 1.5 hour added to our hike to bag an extra peak. Good times and great weather. A significant amount of people and dogs made some parts slow going, but that's the weekend.

Ski with Belford  Sucess!

Ski descent in combo with Belford. Not much of a ski, there are better routes if you are willing to drop a lot of elevation (and thus gain it all back going over Belford), but with weather rolling in I tried to stay higher.

Long day  Sucess!

Climbed two 14ers with some great company on Saturday. Starting at 5AM from the Missouri Gulch trailhead we made the summit of Mount Belford around 12PM. I went on to solo neighboring Mount Oxford and had to reclimb Belford on my way back. Made it back to the trailhead at 5:30 making this a very long day. 11 miles roundtrip with 6000 ft. of elevation gain over 12 hours.

Short-saddle traverse  Sucess!

This is a neat high-altitude traverse from mt. Belford. The 700' loss/gain is quick but kinda a unique workout at 13,000!
