warriorpoetWinter Route via Mona
Date Climbed: Jan 26, 2008


I signed up to go with BYU Outdoors Unlimited, because some friends wanted do it that way so they could rent the gear, and I don't have a lot of winter climbing experience yet. At about 9,000 ft. one of our guides was feeling queezy, and the other guide decided to go back down with him. At a little over 10,000 ft. A diabetic guy got sick, and so we all went back down with the remaining guide. basically it was a waste of money, because I already have all my own gear. Lesson learned: take a level 1 avalanche course, get your own equipment, and don't waste money on professional guides.

"Professional" guides? You use the term very loosely, yes? :)

My big sister and I made it to the top of North Nebo. Honor to climb the highest peak in the Wasatch. Great time and a tough short climb.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 1980


We had picked the Andrews Ridge (South) route. All of a sudden, this big rainstorm comes from seemingly NOWHERE. We were stranded
inside our vehicle overnight. The morning dawned clear, and the
summit was reached in short order. The weather can change rapidly,
on this very prominent Utah land form and towering summit pyramid.

Gorgeous day, but a very crowded mountain. Good "last hoorah" before classes began.

Climbed North Peak first and then onto North Nebo. About 6 inches of fresh snow made for some extra fun. From the North Peak Trailhead it was about 2:55 to the top of North Nebo.

I took my 17 year old son and 11 year old daughter to the North Peak via Monument Trail Head. Beautiful day. Looks very dry this year. This is a great day hike. Beautiful views. I was proud watching my daughter scramble to the top.

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2007


Great directions from the SummitPost page and assistance from Dan Ransom's report (linked on this page) made this easy to plan. At this time there's no snow and the trail is well marked. The Nebo Scenic Byway is incredible, too, and makes for a great drive to the TH.

Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2004


Started from Monument Trailhead--hiked via the Nebo Bench Trail--and then bushwacked up to Wolf Pass--then on to the summit. We hiked down via the North Trail. Great Hike! Very few people when compared to Mt. Timpanogos!

Moogie737From the north - the entire Nebo ridge + North Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2007


Left the Mona Pole (Monument TH area)dirt parking area at 7:30 and arrived at Andrews Ridge TH at 3:30. In between, lots of wonderful ridge scrambling including over North Peak. Taking the ridges wherever possible is the best route entirely. 3+12 to the north Nebo summit, 1+10 to the south Nebo summit. Great group of John, Lana, Anne, Judy, Dave and myself. Big wildfire at the southern junction of Nebo Scenic Loop and Highway 132 closed the southern exit, but we had planned to exit to the north, so it worked out fine! This was my 4th time at the north summit of Nebo. Fifth time was the entire Nebo ridge from the Andrews Ridge TH to the Monument TH including the ridge between the south and north summits. Total time for this 12-mile batch of fun was 8 hours. With Brent and Lana. 6th time today (June 19, 2008) from the Monument TH. 3+45 to the north summit with crampons necessary ascending to the North Peak ridge. 7+00 exactly for r/t. Nice glissading. Thanks to Tracy, Anne & Lana for their helpful contributions. Seventh time 8-26-08 as part of the ridge run from south to north - again. Eight hours less 2 minutes. Thanks to Dave, Brent & Lana. #8 6-16-12 via Monument TH 3+24 up. Bluebird day. #9 7-19-14 WMC ridge run south to north plus North Peak. 8+20 IVD

Very scenic and not very demanding hike. Probably a Wasatch classic. Not as good as Lone Peak or Timp, but excellent nonetheless.

OutdoorpartnerStill snow in June
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2007


Still a snow cap on the immediate top that you need to traverse around. The snow is so soft that if you begin to fall, it is very difficult to self arrest with an axe. I turned around due to time restraints (after one scary slide), but within a few weeks Nebo should be clear of snow.

Reminded me of Timp, with the trail going all the way to the top. One nice glissade off of the ridge north of North Peak, but almost no snow left along the entire trail. 1000's of ladybugs shared the summit with me, where I also found some interesting invertebrate fossils. Neat!

seanpeckhamall three summits  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2007


I did the south summit in July 1996, armed with outdated information as to which summit is the highest. I have now (as of Aug 25 2007) also done the north and middle summits from the north side. I went with the Wasatch Mountain Club this time. There were some outstanding views and lighting once it became partly cloudy, and some fun easy scrambling at a couple of points between the north and middle summits.

Climbed with my friend John to the north summit on a beautiful sunny day. Ran into a group of Boy Scouts kicking around up there. Also passed a couple of fellow BYU students who were climbing pretty recklessly. There were hunters out that day, and we heard several shots. Made me a little nervous, and made me wish I was wearing bright orange. :)

We took the north ridge route to the north summit of Mt. Nebo. We started at 9200 feet from the trailhead that's about 1/2 mile down a dirt road at the Monument Trailhead parking lot and then followed basically the same route described by Hyrum Wright at http://hiking.hyrumwright.org/hike/Mount_Nebo. Round-trip distance was 9.2 miles; gross elevation gain was 3800 feet, while the net elevation gain was about 2700 feet. We didn't cross any snow, and there were no sections that were very tricky, although we did need to use our hands in a couple places.

Trailhead around 7am, summit 11am.

Near record temps for our annual late April Nebo hike. We go via a little used route beginning NE of Mona on the Mona Pole Road. Starting at the mouth of Pole Canyon gives you over 6000 feet of vertical, but because the road had been graded recently, Lee drove 1.7 miles and 1600 vertical feet up canyon before parking!

LonePeakFreakA love-hate relationship


Attempted several times, only to be turned around thisclose to the summit each time. I love it when I'm there and hate it when she tells me no. But I'll always go back.
