anybody have any information for finding this route? is there just one bolt line (the one for pretty in pink)?

Hey Shaun, I have always wondered where this route is too. I believe it is the start of Pretty in Pink/Barney Rubble to the first bolt then cut straight over to Godzilla and finish on that to the anchors. This is just my guess, I haven't done this route yet and am not sure whether it creates a runout, going from b1 to b2 that is.

are we the only ones climbing this stuff? and by the way, how many routes do you have left?

Yeah I don't understand why more people don't get on chossy routes with rusted bolts (please note sarcasm). I think I am at 12(?), but giving up. How about you? Sounds like your trying to finish it off? Go for it!

18 for me, not including a couple of variations. i was slowly knocking em off, but im moving to oregon in about a month, so i dont think ill have time, unfortunately. i think ill get two more in before i go.
there are still a few that i havent done that are good: paul's boutique, climb or die, pulldown menu, femme fatale, user friendly.
and a few that ill never do: campinini, new tomorrow, quiet desperation. these old man joints just dont want it that bad.

According the Mike Ferris guide book this route breaks out of the crack before pretty in pink does. I have done pretty in pink, and cutting over onto the face before the bolt does add some moves that are harder then pink, but as a route it is kind of a worthless eliminate as you avoid following the path of least resistance up the line of protection just to add a few moves.
