I basically headed up the west side of Mount Patterson and encountered quite a bit of deadfall. I was able to traverse over to the north shoulder via a use trail that reaches the saddle between Patterson and Pt 11008. Nisa was a straightforward hike down the ridge from Patterson. I descended via game trails from the saddle between Nisa and Patterson.
Green - Nisa - Patterson Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2009
Hiked all three peaks from the Green Mountain Trailhead. The water level of Tonahutu Creek was high, so crossing it to begin the climb up Nisa Mountain's northwest ridge was exciting. Big Meadows was swarming with mosquitos, but the views from the top of Mount Patterson were worth it.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
