Great hike with few patches of snow left. Flowers were everywhere. Only saw 2 other people via North route all day. Was very proud of my 11 year old that made it up and back.
Very steep trail to start off with. Awesome view from the top.
I wanted to do Nebo and didn't have anyone to go with me. I don't know how I did it, but I talked Mike into going with me. It was a great hike and Mike did awesome for his first "real" peak. We took the North route. We could see a nasty thunder storm coming in as we got to the top. Made it off the top before the storm came.
Fantastic Hike, It was a very Hot day, somewhere in the 90s. We started at 9am and got back to the car at around 3pm spent about 45 minutes on top. Watch out for the thunder storms during the summer, They started to build up around noon or so. I'm not going to lie to you, It was a hard hike for me, but I am so glad I made it, I think the view from the top is second to none. highly recommend this hike.
Alot of times first trip in 1995
Yes, I did forget my boots, so I wore skate shoes and cotton socks to the summit. About a foot of snow starting right after North Peak. The final ridge is awesome, I'd love to get it in the winter. A must-do!
I hiked Mount Nebo in September of 2004 with my friend Bruce from Wyoming. Of all the Utah high points I have hiked thus far, this is the toughest. It may have had something to do with taking the wrong trail and having to bushwack up a steep talus slope to get back on track, but nonetheless...
Summited on a beautiful Saturday afternoon from the North Ridge. Saw only a few other groups. Great hike that is not so hard.
A beautiful day for an amazing hike. We made it to the summit in 4.5 hours (at a very leisurely pace). Our descent to the trailhead took about 2.5 hours. This is a challenging route with plenty of scenery to enjoy along the way.
Very nice area and bag North peak on your way up as well. Pics and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah_climbing/wasatch_mountains/nebo_loop/mount_nebo_090.htm
"Professional" guides? You use the term very loosely, yes? :)
Sept 9, 2016 - with KLAS, Monument Trailhead. 3 hours up and
2 hours down.
May 8, 2010 - Went up pole canyon with the UCC on May 8, 2010. We got about 19 people to the peak.
Nov. 1, 2008 - Climbed to the North Peak via the North Route (2.75 hours), then traversed to the Middle Peak (45 minutes), then continued over to the South Peak (1.5 hours). Descended via Andrews Ridge to to the Nebo Bench trail and followed that back to the Mona Pole road. Over all covered almost 18 miles and approximately 4000 vertical feet (going from peak to peak to peak one has to lose and regain about 500 feet of elevation). Round trip with food and picture breaks included took about 9.5 hours. See the video.
~North Peak/ South Peak/ No Peak~
Soloed the South Peak, via Andrew's Ridge, Oct 15, 2005.
Bagged the North Peak with WarriorPoet, via the North Route, Sept 3, 2007.
Tried for the South Peak, via Willow Creek, Jan 19, 2008 but didn't summit.
and it brought out the ATV's in Mona Pole Canyon. We didn't don snowshoes until well into Jone's Canyon, well above its intersection with the Mona Pole Road. We got 6,300 vertical feet and sunburned. Great day!
09/10 North route, north summit. Great hike and views from the top. Pretty crowded for Nebo.
10/07 Took the south route to south summit. Loved every minute of it even after tweaking my knee on the way down. Had the mountain to myself, didn't see another soul on my way up or down. To me, that's perfect and I really connected to Nebo.
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.
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.
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.
been up a couple times. summer and early spring.
