An absolutely fabulous route. Three scoops followed by excellent patina edges makes for a unique, classic route. In my opinion this route is better than Mulva but both are not to be missed.
I would recommend stick clipping the first bolt as the starting moves are tricky and the rock seeps.

"Yeah, the continuation is called "A Cold Slap in the Face". I need to add a bolt right after the traverse at the beginning. I hung a long sling off the first bolt when I did it (the 2nd pitch). Actually, it is/was meant to be climbed as a single pitch. I called it 5.12c when done that way.
There is a bolted anchor at the top of the wall here, so it is possible to TR this thing, just be careful setting it up!"
