Date Climbed: Feb 15, 2015


This is kind of a miserable hike. I followed the route listed on this page by Eric Willhite, over peak 8100 and on to the top. Don't get me wrong this is an awesome mountain with awesome cliff bands around the summit and killer views, but the bushwhack from peak 8100 for the next 1.5 miles was up there as one of the worse I have done. Cursing and crawling were a prerequisite. Roundtrip stats were 6,171' gain and 13.8 miles. Did this P1K with fellow SP'er gjagiels.

Climbed from Pass Canyon. Some bushwacking from the pass between Barneys Peak and Nelson but not too bad. Outstanding views of Salt Lake and Tooele Valleys!

Pfeiffer75Hard peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 31, 2011


My second attempt at Nelson. Drove up Bates Canyon to the gate. The road is extremely nasty with large ruts, steep grades, and big boulders. At the gate (5300') climbed the spur ridge to the north sub peak. Traversed south to Nelson Peak. Snow conditions were miserable with significant bush wacking. Views were astounding. Trip info was 7.4 miles RT with 4900 feet elevation gain
