fantastic route, good gear. Belayed just short of corner in a comfy niche. Belayed top of the groove to be above K (who did it fine) and top pitch was wonderful as well (moving left onto arete)

Led P1, easy hand traverse to beneath V groove. Seconded P2, wide bridge gave me cramp in my hips. Tough moves once hands ran out, although feet are good if you can keep moving them up. Exposed higher up, but technically easier.
