Heather - see that you are signed up for the PaTN and Vose Spur hikes that we are leading with Kate. Feel free to bring a bunch of questions to the hikes :>

We loved doing the NEHH peaks - got us to places we'd never go otherwise!


I am signed up for both hikes! And the one that Tomoko is doing this weekend to Scar Ridge.

Thank you
Heather

PATN? Also, is Mt Carlo a NEHH peak? I don't remember. :oops:


It isnt but it was an extra that was in the middle on my way! Why not one more, right?

Mt Carlo was nice. I crossed over it on my way to Goose Eye. My wife and I satyed at Carlo Col Campsite and she hiked just Mt Carlo with me on the second day. I wanted to go to Mt Success after but she was not fond of the boulders and ledge leaving the col. :cry:

I feel dumb but what is PaTN?

Unnamed 3813' summit north of North Twin(NEHH #88 ). Colloquially referred to as Peak Above the Nubble. Everyone else is getting the capitalizations wrongs but it's okay.

"The Nubble" is another name for Haystack Mountain and this peak is above it, hence the name. Since "The Nubble" is a "name" I am not sure why we don't just write PATN - as in why should the "t" in The Nubble be lower case? Maybe the other name is really just "Nubble" or "Nubble Peak" or something.

Hey Bob when are you leading a hike up PATN?

Steph and I are leading an AMC-ish hike up PATN this Sunday. We'll be visiting the Nubble and climbing a really easy slide. PATN slide is my favorite slide in the Whites FYI.

If anyone is interested, let me know. You don't have to be an AMC member to go (I'm not).

Thanks for clearing that up. I've been there years back but knew it as Unnamed Peak 3813'. Back then I knew nothing of the herd paths and routes to get up. We just whacked in a straight line from the end of Haystack Rd. Some of the toughest spruce I've ever encountered. At times it forced us onto all fours. We were glad to find a herd path just before reaching the summit. Not so glad to continue the whack all of the way to the summit of North Twin. :twisted: Someone should name it as it seems to have grown in popularity. :)

I went on a trip last year to Success, Carlo, and Goose Eye (well, some of the lightweights wimped out on Goose Eye). One of the best hiking days ever. I remember having lots of fun with JustJoe when we got to the bouldery section before Carlo. Wasn't sure how we were going to get down at first. When I continued on to Goose Eye with Russ (McRat), I'll never forget the feeling of thinking we were almost there, only to come upon a huge gully where we had to climb down, then back up a steep (and just barely functional) ladder. I was pretty beat after Carlo but in case I decide I care about the NEHH someday, I figured I might as well bag Goose Eye while we were nearby.

Sign up? Where are these hikes/signups posted? Is it an AMC group hike listing?

I hope people take the original intent of this list to heart (from the application form):
"The primary purpose of the New England Hundred Highest Club is to promote the development of wilderness navigation skills by experienced hikers."

My emphasis, not the AMC's.

And also this from the official application:
"Please do not use the illegally constructed herd path that ascends Peak above the Nubble from the Haystack Road. It is very poorly located and will become severely eroded if it receives any substantial amount of use, causing great damage to the natural qualities of this peak. Hikers who feel compelled to use this route are requested to refrain from applying for official membership in the New England Hundred Highest Club."

Also from the application:

The New England Hundred Highest Club was founded for reasons that include the promotion of map-and-compass route-finding skills.

If you do not have sufficient navigational skills to climb the trailless peaks with confidence, then please learn the skills, follow skilled leaders, or abandon the goal of climbing the New England Hundred Highest

Seems they are no longer mentioning the illegal trail that was cut from the north side any longer - wonder why.

Wish they would update the website - it is seriously outdated.
