  • Description 

    This route is on the East face of the third piece of the Nebel Horn ridge and leads you to the summit of the Nebel Horn proper. This ridge has from South to North: Pellea, Onoclea, and the Nebel Horn.

    Unlike the other two segments of this expansive East face, the third segment (where the Nebel Via is) is crisscrossed with gullies and ledges, making the climb more of a mountaineering experience than an actual rock climb.

    Hike up the Fern Canyon trail as for Pellea and Onoclea. Hike past the first two sections and start at a gully on the bottom of the face.

    Follow the gully/ledge system up the face. When you reach the final summit block, avoid the overhanging section by traversing North and climbing its 3rd class North/West side.

    Descend West onto hiking territory and hike South to the saddle on the Fern Canyon trail.

    Protection 

    Standard Flatiron rack.

    A so-so scramble/hike, but a heck of a beautiful summit!
