Comments
Comments: Went around the gate and continued up Turbine Road, Bathtub extension, Bathtub and Kilowatt to the turbine roads leading to turbines 1-5. For some reason, we had turbine 2 in our heads so followed the road there. Entered the woods just behind the turbine and began a 15 minute hairy, steep bushwhack up the steep side of Jericho. What you should do instead is to take the road towards turbines 1 & 2, then take the first hard left turn and continue up the road. You'll pass a turbine, then a fork: stay right continuing uphill. Soon on the right you will see an overgrown snowmobile road that will bring you to a clearing just below the summit. Looking up towards the summit, you will see a break in the woods on the left. Here there is a nice herd path which will lead you straight to the jar! You can go back exactly the same way. An alternative rout is to take the power line cut which is half flat walking and half pretty good climbing (or descending if you decide to go down that way!)
