Fun climb. Beatiful weather and good snow until about 11am - it is definitely spring snowclimbing season!
While the massif ridgeline was really fun, Cedar Ridge was a pain. It was nice to revisit the site of my cornice accident - it was strangely therapeutic.
I had read a description of the northern ridge route from Gerry Roach, so with a map in hand, I made the easy hike up to the northernmost summit of Mt. Nebo. The trail goes through a shaded forest for a bit before skirting the west slopes of North Peak (not Mt. Nebo) on the way to Wolf Pass. At Wolf Pass, it acends a subpeak and skirts to the West a little more. I found some sharp crappy rock near the top where it was better to avoid backtracking on the trail a little instead of trying to grab anything. The register is a very heavy duty steel box that looks like it can resist the inevitable lightning strike. Some spots immediately below the summit on the North side were a little sloppy because of loose rock, but it wasn't much.
This is a butt-kickin' hike! Probably didn't help summiting in the middle of the freakin' summer! Awesome views though and well worth the sweat and burning legs!
Steep trail. Follow knife-edge ridge to summit. Beautiful views the entire way of fall colors. A must do fall hike.
The weather had been nasty until that morning, so the air was very clear and the views were fantastic. Very enjoyable climb, with cool breezes. It was the second of eight consecutive days climbing 5000-foot+ prominence peaks in Utah and Nevada.
Had the mountain all to myself on a fine sept day. Saw a badger on the way up, a first for me. The views were outstanding and the north peak is the highest point in Utah county. Elevation gain counting the ups and the downs of both ways is more like 3600 feet.
Climbed all three summits from the north and descended Andrew's ridge. The weather was cool, there were high winds, and we had to watch out for thunderstorms, which hit us just as we finished the hike.
The trail was nice and easy - fairly well maintained. The rock was loose, but the views were excellent! I've gotta come back and do this in the winter!
This is a tough day hike. We saw a bald eagle on the south summit and it floated straight up and out of sight. We did not see another soul on the trail all day. Perfect solitude, great friends and a fantastic mountain.
Nice winter climb, one of my favorites.
Post holed for half the hike, not alot of fun. Cloud cover with zero view.
Wonderful peak. Climbed north nebo in 1994 via Nebo Bench and routefind up to Wolf Pass, then a trail to the main summit. In 1998 I climbed Andrews Ridge trail to south nebo, a long, steep trail.
Great hike. Some of my favorite mountain views are along this route.
Nice long day with beautiful views. See trip report for details.
