Meall Meadonach by Alex37 Meall Meadonach by Alex37
I have just returned from a trip to Assynt and Coigach with *Orca76

The greatest part of the trip was a summit wild camp on one of Scotlands finisest mountains, Suilven. The hike is not for the feint hearted. A 6 mile hike followed by a climb to 731m might not sound that hard, but try taking camping and photography gear to the summit and it's a slightly different ball game. I basically had to force Jake up the mountain, but he made it in the end!

The night was very rough indeed, we were in a totally exposed location, literally on the summit and overnight the wind changed from a 10mph easterly to a 30 gusting 50 southerly. My tent got absolutely hammered, but stood up well in the end. I certainly spent the coldest 5 minutes of my life resetting the guy lines at 12.30. It was soooooo cold!

This was taken around 4.45 am on the back of 3 hours of sleep! This is Meall Meadonach, the south eastern peak of Suilven.
