I know the first few belays were rebolted. People use it as an alternate start for T-Trip, and it is the Trip rap route. Don't know much else...

supertopo might be a good place to post your Q

Good luck with the girlfriend on a wall thing, I'm envious...my wife strongly claims she will never climb a wall with me...

I haven't done it, but the beta I got was to do the first pitch of Lost in America and then traverse on the ledge to where you meet up with the second pitch. The first pitch of Virginia supposedly sucks. I can't speak from experience though.
Cheers,
The Dude

Ok, thanks for that. I think I had heard a similar thing to that a while ago.... will opt for the first pitch of LA then!
