I'm not sure if he was cute. There was a little brother or sister around who simply wanted to have a bit of grass from near where he was standing and he immediately charged. But maybe it was a provocation in ibex language?
Anyhow - I felt real stupid lugging my pack up the mountain and I'm sure the Ibexes thought so too. They looked quite amazed that such clumsy beings as humans actually thought of getting that high without four hoofs to help them. They watched and then - as if to prove themselves right - they would go 1 - 2 - 3 and then be up somewhere high above us.
