Brilliant mate, looked like a nice camp. How was the wind up there? Any time I'm up it's usually blowing a gale

Class, another brilliant camp. The hounds do love rollicking around in the snow.

That was some sunrise mate, the colours are awesome. Had a wee chuckle at the auld Lab sitting getting the bones warmed in the first rays of the sun.

Fantastic!!

My last couple of summit camps have been wet and windy with not much of a view. It's nice to be reminded what it does look like sometimes  :)
I was camping on Slievenaglough on Monday night and the weather was atrocious. The difference one day makes!

What a fantastic sunset and sunrise.  There's no guarantee of either, and you got both.  That's good planning!

Looks fantastic. Donard is the last 7 I've never summit camped, must get around to it. Though the thought of lugging a nights gear up the Granite Trail doesn't fill me with glee, it's a slog and a half  :o

That's why I stuck that pic in, it looked like a great spot to camp. Was really nice on the walk up but didn't get any pics before the snow and fog came

Ah, yes, I know where you are talking about now. It does look like a good spot. Not where I was camped though.
I was over on the eastern peak. The one that is 573 metres.
It is on my list of the 39 peaks over 500 metres that I am planning to camp on (long term plan)
