Godzilla starts 5 meters to the right of Amphibian and shares the last two bolts. It is a thin seem with a small roof at the first bolt. It is set up to stick clip the first bolt. The climbing is slightly more powerful than Amphibian, and it starts on a small pillar of ice that is usually in by early December. Make sure the abs are tone as the first series of moves requires a fair amount of body tension. A nice tope rope from Amphibian if the guns are a little worn out.
7 bolts and 1 short ice screw.

I like this route better than Amphibian. I would agree that it is slightly more powerful, but the line is more direct to the upper roof. Clipping (or blowing the clip) at the long draw is not as consequential as it is coming from Amphibian. Very fun route.
