Deep Throat (V,6), Coire an Lochain

After yesterday's drama my bottle to try anything harder than V had disappeared along with my Nalgene bottle that had rolled down the slopes below Savage Slit yesterday morning. The winds were calmer today and the cliffs nicely hoared up. We climbed Deep Throat which was in excellent condition. Rick climbed the classic first pitch through the roofs and I strung the second and most of the third together. The route was as good (possibly better) as Savage Slit. We reached the top of the route by 2pm and with more temperate plateau conditions were able to walk off instead of abseiling. And so began the March back to the car park and the drive to London.
