Good routes to top rope solo in the canyons?

LCC or BCC. I know Bong Eater is the classic one, but looking for some variety. Trad preferably. Comfortable climbing 5.6 solo to get to adjacent anchors, if that helps.

Thanks for suggestions!

A few that come to mind:

-The Egg - easy hike around, with some directionals/midway anchors needed to account for the low angle wandering.
-The Sail - has a few nice lines with a longer approach up to the backside.
-Mexican Crack - with directionals
-Green A Gully Right Side - A fixed line bypasses the lower schoolroom rappel, and low 5th gets you through the upper. Easy scramble to the top of many routes

-Strone Crag - Many anchors can be reached by down climbing from the Standard Ridge starting notch
-Lonely Challenge Wall - Anchors can be reached from partway up Standard Ridge
-Storm Mountain Island - solo The Flake to access a few harder face lines, or hike over and scramble down to gain Goodros/Generation Gap
-Yellow Peril Wall - Cool 10 and 12 face, easy 4th to the top

Almost anything in Ferguson is accessible from the top!
