The first day went as planned we hiked up to Burg lake froze our feet crossing the river then climbed 800 meters up some fifth class rock covered in snow and ice.
Finally the summit was in sight and with it came some very intense winds making our stay on the short side. Strapping on headlamps and some extra layers we headed down in search of some softer snow to dig a cave.
This seemed amazing to me that this wolverine actually had a habit of scouring the higher reaches of Robson to find the body's of perished climbers. Having read about accounts where parks rescue would follow the wolverine tracks leading to the body we hoped that this was not the case.
