Windy and cold on summit  Sucess!

Lots of fun glisades between summit and saddle both ways. Did Belford then the Ox via Missouri Gulch. Made camp at the cabin Friday night. I'll be back a 3rd time to get big MO. . .

Oxford-Belford  Sucess!

The date is a guess - it was sometime before I graduated. Linked Oxford and Belford.

Via Belford  Sucess!

Cold start....but a great day. Perfect weather and great hiking partners (Alan and Scout) made it a wonderful experience.

Owl on summit!  Sucess!

Climbed this one from Belford in the middle of the night under a full moon! No headlamp was needed! At the summit, an owl swooped right over me!

Oxford via Belford & MO Gulch  Sucess!

First duo nearly whooped me! Great climbing partners kept me going. Grateful for an early start which allowed us to see the BIG thunderstorm in the rearview mirror as we drove east out of Clear Creek Canyon. #8 and #9!

Via Mt. Belford  Sucess!

My wife and I hiked Mt. Oxford via Mt. Belford from the Missouri Gulch trail head for our 4th and 5th 14ers and first double. We got caught by grapple snow on the return to Belford and then rain as we descended via Elkhead Pass.

From Belford  Sucess!

Easy climb over from Belford - but a long pull on the way out. Great camp at Vicksburg the night before we climbed. Not so many people back then. A big dog - from whereabouts unknown, came to visit our campfire. Really fine memories of these Sawatch peaks.

First Time  Sucess!

This was my first climb of Belford & Oxford. I came down Belford Gulch with someone I met on the trail rather than go back over Belford. There was a trail which faded out. We then got to bushwack back along the creek to the bridge on the Missouri Gulch trail. I wouldn't recommend this return unless it was to escape some lightning.

All three!  Sucess!

I climbed the three peaks, Belford, Oxford and Missouri in a long day, Nice country up there.

Camped at 14K  Sucess!

Bagged after a long morning trying to get motivated while sitting in our tent after camping near the summit of Belford. The winds were herendous. 60-70mph continuous wind and freezing temps. Had to stop and rub our noses to avoid frostbite. Went with Brian Smith from the Mountain Madness 2007 Everest Summit Team. Sprained my ankle on the way down. Never let your partner use your trekking poles for tent anchors! I could have used them on the way down but the locks were lost in the snow or the wind. Other than that, GOOD TYMES!

West Ridge  Sucess!

Traversed over from Belford and back on a windy, cloudless day. The hike back up to Belford is steep and demanding, like many others have mentioned. It worked me pretty good too. Another great day in the Sawatch.

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.
