From summit of Mt Oxford after crossing the traverse, now we must cross back but no need to re summit Mt Belford as we will cut left a little early and hike down towards Elk Park

Missouri Mountain from elk park pass. You can attempt to summit on this class 4 ridge in front of us but on this day I hiked off down to the right and caught the standard route up Missouri.
