"He skidded off about 1,000 metres from (Mt Nuptse) camp two early morning on Sunday.

“I’ll tell the truth, the thought of running back to face the bear armed with only a ski pole slowed me – in fact, armed with a bazooka would have still slowed me – but Greg was shouting my name, how could I just stand? After managing to fight off the bear, which had left five deep wounds in Mr Boswell’s leg, the pair spent several terrifying hours wandering around the woods in darkness as they attempted to find their kit and navigate down the mountain, which is near the ski resort of Banff. Following Greg’s bloody footprints, I wondered at what distance bears can smell blood,” Mr Bullock recalled.

Greg Boswell, 24, from Cupar in Fife, was making his way through thick forest on the 3,261ft Mount Wilson in the Canadian Rockies at the weekend when the “monster” bear chased him down as his climbing companion Nick Bullock watched in horror.
