strongbadreggieAmazing night hike!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2011


Started on the North Peak Trailhead at 2:30 am. Full moon out, cool mountain night air, trail easily visible in the dark. Summited 30 minutes after sunrise, great pictures! On the hike down, hot, and a lot of hikers. Glad we opted for the middle of the night!

RedwicTrail 089 (North Route)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2012


This would mark the conclusion of a major out-of-state peakbagging weekend for me. Thank goodness I had been exercising a lot beforehand and did another big peakbagging trip the previous week, or this weekend would not have gone so well. OK, so my body is now telling me *it* is not doing so well, but the summit accomplishments are still there.

After a series of long cross-country drives from doing Kings Peak, Wheeler Peak, and Mount Grafton during the previous two days, I headed back into Utah for a morning hike of Mount Nebo before flying out later that night. I would only sleep a couple of hours, but when I initially fell asleep I was soon startled by the car shaking. I thought it was a bear. I looked up and was astonished to find... a cow rubbing his tongue and nose against the back window of my rental car. WTF??? I set off the car alarm and the cow ran away, never again (as far as I know) getting close to the vehicle. I turned on my headlamp and looked around... there were cows EVERYWHERE near the parking area.

I fell asleep and then woke up a few hours later. I really enjoyed the hike. The final ascent from Wolf Pass looked a little intimidating, but was really just a steep trail hike. The final "scramble" to the summit ridge is also over-exaggerated in some trip reports... although I would not want to be there in a rainstorm or thunderstorm. I signed the summit register and headed down, passing only one hiker along the way.

This weekend was full of all of the classic elements of a solo out-of-state Redwic peakbagging trip: Long drives, long hikes, little sleep.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2012


Late start on the north peak route... got to summit fine. Went to take a 15 minute nap at lower saddle on way back, ended up sleeping for an hour, temps soared and even though I downed 4 liters of water I got heat stroke. Cold shower never felt so good.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2010
My wife and I decided to go on very short notice late in the day. We ended up at the Nebo Bench Trail which apparently is not the shortest approach. It was however completely devoid of other humans and appeared to be rarely used. The trail had several places where the winter snows had removed the trail leading to dangerous moments. After about 8 miles we turned back.

Great trip up the north ridge. Pleasant fall hike to Wolf Pass then the snow started. Winds were high and temps dropped a lot. Early winter mountaineering, glad I had my axe.

Date Climbed: Oct 16, 2010


We got up to the top of Nebo after the first snows of the year. It was a nice hike. The slog up North Peak was a little tough but we did it. I have climbed this mountain 3 times total. I should put up a trip report...hmmm...

Utah county. Thanks to Tad from Boise for showing up at the trail-head at roughly the same time I did. Great company. Hopefully I can make it up to Idaho do a 12'er with you up there!

awilk7Finally Complete  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2010
I finally completed my summit of Mt. Nebo (north peak), 8 years after having to turn around upon reaching the south summit in 2002. This time I skipped the longer southern route and went via the north ridge (I highly recommend it, unless you want to bag all three peaks in the same trip). The weather was perfect, wind was minimal.

Nebo was a great summer hike with a little scrambling and a short glissade on the descent. The view from the summit was excellent, and was also covered with thousands of ladybugs. That I did not expect.

Dicey with snow conditions made for some ridge climbing straight up the N. face. Fantastic glissades back down. Only person on the mountain from any direction I could see.

Finally got the North Summit after feeling bad for just climbing the south years before. It is a lot steeper near the summit than I thought it would be.

KruckRe: North Ridge


Funny. I saw your entry as I was posting mine. You bet it was steep. The E. face (normal) switchback section was mired under that 'hanging on for dear life' snowfield, which I didn't want to touch with a 10-foot pole. Ridge running for now on the N. route, maybe for another month or so given the snowpack.

Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2010


This was my final Utah County highpoint. Crowds were not too bad despite it being a holiday weekend. The early start time probably helped with that. I was glad to finally get this peak done because it was visible from so many others.
