Jolly Mt. 3.15.05

I had hoped to be able to drive to the trailhead, but wasn't really expecting to. Of course the first part of the road was glare ice, I gave myself a 50/50 chance of making it. Since it was such a nice day and I had plenty of time I decided to walk to 7 or so miles to the trailhead. The rest of the road was for the most part was quite passable. Around 3 hours later I made it to the trailhead, The first was a bit hard to follow but upon reaching the ridgeline it became more apparent. I followed the ridge to a nice point just past the junction to West Teanaway, were I was quite content to have lunch on a nice sun soaked spot. I shaved quite a bit of time on the descent by cutting some of the swichbacks. Although the day was quite long (around 16 miles) and I really didn't climb anything it was a quite satisfying day.
