North Ridge via North Peak, great peak with tremendous views, one of the highlights of a week long climbing trip in the area.
from bluebird sky to menacing - glad we didn't sit around too long enjoying the view. Picked up a large amount of garbage on the way down - candy wrappers, 3 water bottles, Jolly Ranchers, potato chip container, etc. ... why are people that make the effort to summit peaks like this such assholes???
The Eug and I hiked/ scrambled over the entire ridge via the North Route. Took the knife edge from the north summit to the middle, but we bailed 3/4 of way across and followed the trails for the rest if the hike. We intended to take the bench trail back to the parking lot, but somehow missed the turnoff and ended up at the Andrews Ridge Trailhead at the south end of the mountain instead. Hitchhiked back to the car with a happy-go-plucky girl ("I love picking up hitchhikers!") in a two-seat BMW convertible. The Eug had to sit on my leg and I was cramped up next to the stick shift, but it was fun nonetheless.
Climbed in 5:20 car-to-car including a trip up North Peak. Was able to communicate with my brother via Ham radio from the top. Over 40 miles transmitting at 1 watt.
Got sunburned legs on the way down. Probably should have applied sunscreen.
Climbed with the WMC up an unnamed couloir to Wolff Pass. Took the traditional route back over North Peak
Way back in the winter of 2003-2004 I went on a trip with an outdoors group at my school and did Nebo in winter. We didn't go to the true summit, though, and I've never been back. This was my first real mountain experience after moving from the East Coast, and it got me hooked on climbing.
I climbed Nebo and North Mountain on a beautiful day in about 6 hours round trip. This is a really nice hike.
Climbed North Peak on the way up, kinda steep, clouds gathered and chased us off the mountain. I think we were the last ones to summit that day. Black clouds surrounded the summit by the time we got back to our car.
Camped at the cattle guard and when we were chillin a guy was hiking down with a 2 year old we went over and started to talk and his sister was on her way down with a 6 month baby. they made it all the way up to the peak. we headed out at first light. hit the peak in 3 hr. ran up to north peak on our way back.
Up in 3 hours, 40 minutes, spent an hour up top reading summit register, 2 1/2 - 3 hours down. Great mountain!
first time in the Wasatch. Pretty area.
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.
