Why doesn't Ralph want to climb up the mountain until morning? Why do you think Jack does? What do boys decide to do and why?

Ralph does not want to leave Piggy alone with the littluns at night. Jack siezes this opportunity to call Ralph a coward. Jack wants to show Ralph as a weak leader who is scared of the beast, Ralph is forced to climb the mountain or risk losing his leadership.
