Ascent Trip Report

My dad and I only saw two other people, a guy and his g/f, on this hike (atypical of my previous 14'ers.) I remember the summit was slightly windy and cold, but the hike went smoothly. While on the summit, we saw a reservior below with several small icebergs that we decided to check out on the descent. Once at the reservior, I attempted to jump across the icebergs (roughly the size of Volvos.) One of the bergs moved away from the group as I landed on it. As a result, I jumped back and landed up to my waist in the freezing water. We ate lunch at a nearby Taco Bell with me in my wet socks.
