You're really getting about! Well done. A snow camp is great isn't it  ;D
You looked like you were in a bit of a wind tunnel there though, did you get much sleep?

snow camps are super fun, that rock i'm tucked in beside faces west south west and the wind was from the east all night. so i got protected from the worst of it, the met office site said that at the top of binnian it should be 40mph around 2-3am. the wind made some cool sounds howling around the mountain. but i did manage to get a good amount of sleep, the lab managed to, judging by her snoring!

That looked seriously cold, I've had to put another jumper on just from watching that :P
Seriously flappy tent, does it not bother you trying to sleep with all the noise?

it's wasn't so bad when the zipper was closed but the wind plus soaking wet ground did loosen up the guy lines etc so not ideal, still fun, just not ideal! i had a wee tipple at my wee camp on wee binnian to help get a wee sleep. but it wasn't that cold. not as cold as it was up donard the week before.

Yeah, there was loads of it. I assume that most of them die or get eaten because I definitely never see that many frogs up there!
