He was a supreme guide that knew every terrain on the island of Japan. They rented two beat up jeeps to get to the base of the mountain. On their way, a flat tire extended their trip. When they finally arrive at the base of the mountain, they see huge rocks falling from steep cliffs. Since their tour guide was a veteran he guided them to a safe location to start climbing.

When they saw how injured the father was, they took him into a tent to tend to him.

Soon the blizzard dies down and dies down and everyone exhausted. Charles’s sister is so cold that she is turning blue. They decided to stay but because she will die if they keep moving.
