nice one, looks a great route. Heres to a speedy recovery.
p.s "Compared to other E6's I have done, such as Nosferatu. . . the climbing on this route is quite short"
... blimey that's not much climbing.

Compared to, for example, Death Trap at Gogarth, Nosferatu is not much climbing. The grade tells you nothing about the length of the route (Death trap has a grade of E6,5C).
POTDS is had quite a few ascents and I don't suppose anyone thinks it's E8. The climbing is French 7a on really positive holds. It felt about E6 to me climbing it ground up with a couple of pads and no spotters. With loads of pads and spotters it probably feels like a highball (presumably why David Mason didn't stick a grade on his nice vid of it). Superb route.
