Ascent Trip ReportI was trying to make some progress on my 14er list, and my wife, Susan, wanted to do 14ers as well. Earlier in the summer of 2000, we had collected two of the three that had gotten away from me during the big push made in the last few years:
July 1 – Massive (somehow went untried)
July 8 – Yale (Brian and I failed to summit in a Spring whiteout)
The only one left was Oxford, which had gotten away when I was too slow on trip to collect Belford and Oxford with Brian. When Susan and I had a free weekend in early September, project Oxford was a go.
Rather than repeat the camping exercise, we just got up super early and left Boulder @ 2:45pm to drive back to the Missouri Gulch trailhead outside of Vicksburg (the non-existent town up county road 390).
