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...
Wow the hardest Peak for me, not that I climbed a lot lol but it was awesome, beautiful views and challenging!!
Fun hike, took my puppy up but he had to wait while I went for the summit
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!
Via North Ridge, North Peak summit on return.
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.
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.
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.
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.
08/24/06 Kim and I ascended via Andrews Ridge, hit all three summits,and came back the same way. The dogs were a little tired that day.

climbed up the north ridge to the top, working on the 18 11,000' peaks in the wasatch.
Overnighted first ridge we came to on Eastern approach. Summit day was long. Summited all three "peaks". Off-trail on way down. Partner bonked, hurled, dehydrated, but made it.
7/19/2007 With Lana, Anne, Dave, John, and Moogie737. Did the whole ridge from north to south, including North Peak, and hiked out on the Andrews Ridge Trail.
8/28/1999 With MM. Started at the Nebo bench TH. Did North Peak and then the whole Nebo ridge and came back on the Nebo Bench Trail.
8/9/1998 Just did the highest point from the north with the WMC.
Climbed with North Peak. Looks harder than it is. Evening summit, forest fire in vicinity but nice views.
Awesome day, we were in tip top shape, up in 1:16 from the North Peak trailhead. Down in under an hour and sacked out the rest of the day. Beautiful blue sky and wispy clouds.
10/18/10 ascent via North Ridge. decent via Andrews Ridge. Hit all 3 Summits. Took 2 hrs 30mins summit all 3 from car.
09/07/12 Hike to the north summit with my brother in law and my 1 year old dog Nebo
10/08/13 Hiked to the North Summit with my dog Nebo after getting her stitches out after getting hit by a car. Happy 2nd birthday Nebo
Hiked via the north ridge with my uncle Fred. Saw 4 other people the whole day. Great solitude and fantastic views.
Climbed with Nate - I think I slowed him down.
North Ridge via North Peak, great peak with tremendous views, one of the highlights of a week long climbing trip in the area.
