Sueur de Boucs 10th July

After our trip to the Dome des Ecrins, a rest day quite appealed but this was to be our last day in Ailefroide and it was too good a day to sit around so we went to climb Sueur de Boucs. If my translation of the name of this route is correct then it appears to be called "sweat of goats" which didn't sound too inspiring but what's in a name?
Two quite steep pitches then a little easy traverse to a slabby pitch then some strenuous moves onto an airy arete all on good rock.
(Route info - 5c+, 350m, 9 pitches, 7 abseils in descent)
