To avoid rope drag it is probably best to belay the second climber from the top and then rappel down. Otherwise keep the rope out of the crack and have the belayer take a few steps back from the cliff to keep the rope feeding smoothly.

Interesting climb, plan on getting dirty if you get on it.

1 pitch is a grime chosspile, the 2nd pitch which is easily linked is fun but dirty slab.
