Slope'n Soapn is described just as a two pitch route - It has 4-5 bolts in the first pitch that look ok, but the first one has had it's hanger and nut stolen - or maybe that start is impossible and it is climbed via the first few metres of Pulsar. It has it's own rap chains and a tree rap off a major ledge that is separate from Pulsar.

The Mike Law-Smith guide I have from the early 90s lists three routes right of Pulsar - Stardust (20), Startreck (18) and Antique (20). Only Stardust has the first ascent details (Scott Camps 1985). Did you do the others? I'd love that additional bit of info for the online guide!

Here are some pics of some of the bolts I found.
