Boc No Buttress** E5 6a

Rockfax Description
An exciting climb with just enough protection. Climb The Asp to the good runners then make a difficult hand-traverse (easier for lanky types) to the arete, along a poor set of pockets. Continue boldly up the arete, past one good runner. The direct start, 6c, is an astounding leap with a high side runner. © ROCKFAX

Sussed the traverse out on abseil then went for the lead, the last bit's ok... thankfully! Didn't see the "solitary good runner slot" though!?
