Ascent Trip Report

I lead PATN bushwhacking on 9/26. We parked in front of "Three big boulders" which is the starting point of bushwhacking to peakbag PATN. We hiked 10-15min and then, we see very clear herd path at right hand side. This is the PATN path. Soon after, we observed very overgrown bushes at left/right. We bushwhacked this path, then, reached to the VERY clear T junction. I took right turn and hiked 5min or so. Then, again, we saw relatively clear herd path at left side. We start ascent bushwhacking from there. Within 3 min or so, this herd path was kind of dissapeared and we just tried to aim "South" by searching open area (less-spruce area). After getting PATN view point1, we found clear herd path again. We just followed this herd path and we could reach to the summit of PATN relatively easily. It's less than 2 hours ascent bushwhacking. After eating lunch, we start descent bushwhacking. We lost herd path eventually and we did own bushwhacking by searching open area. We completed our hike/bushwhack 4.5 hours and came back to the parking lot around 1:45pm. It was very short hike which I haven't had for a while...
