Exodus Travels guide Paul Goldstein captured the action as the cub failed to clamber up the wall of ice after her mum.
Paul says: “Finally the gambolling cub located her mother and after a short reunion they investigated the upper reaches of the icy tenement. My heart was in my mouth when they approached the precipice but they quickly turned round and found a gentler route down before walking off.
“In the thirty years I have spent following wildlife this was right up there and worth the sunburn, frost nip and general ailments associated with guiding in the deep freeze.”
