Very smart solve! How long did you need to find this?
Yes, this was a very hard scramble for 1-hour solve. I had a 35-move-backup-solve but I thought it wasn’t worth posting. Now I see the best 1-hour solve was 36 moves. What was your 1-hour solution?
With pre-moves U2 L2 you can find nice starts but all left rubbish, also for NISS!

Curious about the length of time? Maybe not only you.
I spent a long time actually, a few hours. Most of the times were spent on investigating the step 3).
So I don’t think this approach can be used in an official competition, at least for me.
In 1-hour solve of #310, I didn’t have any full solution (DNF).
Here are some of my tries:
1st 2x2x1 block: F’ D2 F2 D2
2nd 2x2x1 block: B2 L2 U2
Pseudo 2x2x3 block: L’ U R’
F2L minus 1 slot: F’ U’ F2 U F L’
Finish F2L L’ B L B’
Pair 3-cycle: L U L’ U’ L’ B L B’
first try, almost linear solve, which leaves 3 corners with 27 HTM.
I should complete this skeleton as a backup solution.
Another interesting start for the inverse scramble:
2x2x2 block: L’ U2 D2 R’ L’ D
2x2x3 block: U2 F U2 R2
F2L minus 1 slot: L’ U L U2
I couldn’t find a good continuation in 1-hour. But just now, I found the following continuation:
All but 3 corners: U2 F’ U F’ U2 F U F’ U F2 U2
Not special, 23-moves skeleton. I hope I could find this skeleton in 1-hour…
