Mount Nebo Summit Log (#12295)

We climbed the peak directly from the west and from the Cedar Ridge. This is probably the steepest route on the mountain, but it probably has the best winter climbing conditions. This was a heavy snow year and we only made 9,000 feet elevation before setting up camp because the snow became too soft to climb without snowshoes. We made the summit the next morning on hard snow. One of us didn't have crampons and this made the summit pitch difficult. Overall I think this is the finest peak in the Wasatch to climb in the winter. It is spectacular at that time of year and the Cedar Ridge route is safer than any winter route on Timpanogos or Cascade Mountain.
