“My brother [Lucius] one day explored the main glacier for two or three miles,” wrote Arthur Coleman of his visit to mount robson in 1908, “making the curious find of the bones of a lynx among some morain debris on the ice. Why had the animal chosen that out-of-the-way desert of ice as a burian place? We named the nearest mountain to the west Lynx Mountain, in his honour.”
