toryanderGreat Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2006
I climbed with my son and a friend. We are rank amatuers so this was a good, climb and a little scary in places. That long, sharp ridge on the North route is amazing. What a wonderful feeling to come out on top at almost 12,000 ft. We couldn't stay long as thunderstorms were rolling in. We no sooner got down to the 10,000 foot saddle than the peak was covered in clouds and the rain started to fall. The thunder rolled, one after the other, for most of our trip down. It was a great day. I drive by this peak every day on the way to and from work. It's great knowing I've been up there.

Came along the Nebo loop road and climbed via the north peak route, very steep scree slope towards the end was killer, but overall we had it easy by skipping out on most of the possible elevation gain on the drive. Need to come back to actually summit the North Peak as I am now (but not then)trying to get all of the Wasatch 11,000's. Huge avalanche debrie on the first part of the trek, couldn't believe the size of the trees layed out.

April 2010, summitted via Pole Creek with splitboard and rode the gorgious wide north coulior down and out. Not to be missed.

Climbed this one today with a friend. Alot steeper than I thought at first. Very nice cool day, we had the summit all to ourselves, the group ahead of us was already down when we got there. Nice views as well.

Climbed the south summit via Andrews Ridge trail with Susan in August 2005. Stunning wildflowers and a variety of wildlife -- lots of humble bees just below the ridgeline. One of my favorite Wasatch hikes.

What a great time of year to be on Mt. Nebo. Nice temps and lush greenery everywhere. The hike was wonderful. Fun mountain to climb, but the summit views aren't as astounding as more centrally located peaks in the Wasatch. The views appear to be better in the winter.

I soloed this one in perfect snow conditions on the first day of the deer hunt. There were three huge bucks on the summit as I approached the last 400 yards. Coming down was great. The 4-6 inches of snow absorbed my footsteps on what otherwise would have been loose shale. Weather was clear and sunny.

Rocky AlpsNorth Route  Sucess!

Two months earlier my roommate Gabe and I attempted to go up the north ridge trail, but instead got sidetracked (we followed a cow trail from the paved parking lot instead of driving a bit farther on the dirt road to the north where the trailhead is, and after several hours of bushwhacking were too tired to attempt the summit). I tried finding others to try it again with me, but after 2 months I decided to just do it on my own. I didn't have any snow gear on this solo-hike (a bad idea to be alone in the first place), but everything turned out okay. The views along the north ridge were nice (town of Nephi is 7,500 ft. below), but very different compared to other places in the Wasatch since there are no other mountains of comparable size nearby.

I came back to do the north route again on 9/26/09. See "Last Hike of the Season" trip report for details.

This is the climb that got me addicted to mountaineering. It's a long climb to the South Summit, but a wicked glissade down is well worth the effort.

One of the toughest hikes I've ever done. Endless pounding of the legs. I'll take the North route the next time and save 2,000 feet of pounding. Awesome views - a must do for all local peak baggers.

I know there are a lot of people in Utah who are in awesome shape because of all the outdoor recreation available, but I again have to question their judgment about routes-- how is this a Class 3 route? It's not even 2+ unless you TRY to make it so. Still, good hike with some stunning ridgetop views.

One of the most beautiful climbs of my life summited in crazy weather after a late (10:00am) start summited in 3 hours with very worrisome clouds through out the day. Allot more people out climbing then I was expecting. All and all super fun route.

Hiked the north ridge solo. Cow crap and dust down low leads to a beautiful trail and scenery up high. Fun peak!

We climbed to the South Summit and enjoyed the view. Witnessed a man trigger an avalanche. Really amazing.

This was a great day. The weather was warm but the wind kept us cool during most of the hike. There was still quite a bit of snow on the ridge but nothing that impeded our progress. The scrambling involved in the traverse of the three summits was very fun. The rock wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Fun climb. Beatiful weather and good snow until about 11am - it is definitely spring snowclimbing season!



While the massif ridgeline was really fun, Cedar Ridge was a pain. It was nice to revisit the site of my cornice accident - it was strangely therapeutic.
