The party set out up the mountain again after a cold night sheltering in an overhang.

Two medium wyverns circled overhead, watching them. As the vikings reached the steeper slope leading up to the nest, a larger wyvern took flight. Geir fired some arrows, but to little effect. Near the base of the slope they found a corpse hidden beneath some sort of cloak/basket done up to look like a rock. Frigga figured out the cloak could provide visual cover from the wyverns.

Frigga and Grimman climbed up a short ways (limited by the length of their rope), followed by Geir. While Geir was climbing, wyvern flew by, mauling him with its claws. Helga and Aesa started trying to climb up to reach him. The largest wyvern attacked Helga, trying to carry her off. Helga was roped to the rest of the group, and the extra weight caused the wyvern to crash and let go of Helga. Once on the ground, Helga and Frigga (who bolted down the slope like a madwoman) made short work of the big one. Other wyverns started attacking during this time, but big axes and spears to the eye proved sufficient to deal with them.

They climbed some more, and another large wyvern plus two small ones started attacking them. Geir shot one eye out of the large one, and after several might weapon strikes to its legs, with no damage inflicted on the party (and the loss of more of its brood), it led the few remaining wyverns away, leaving the nest and eggs to the group.

Searching the nest revealed the axe of Odd Dragonslayer, which Aesa happily claimed as her own.
