Route recommendations in Squamish for TR Solo Aid?

Looking to get into aid climbing, and rather than  have someone belay me for 2 hours up a single pitch, I'd prefer to TR solo. I'm looking for recommendations for good routes to practice on, specifically:

  • not popular routes, so I'm not preventing others from climbing things they want to climb
  • easy access to the top of the cliff to set a top rope
  • climbs not requiring hooks or beaks (I have a pretty basic rack at this point and no aid-specific gear except for aiders)

If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them, hoping to get up there on Memorial Day.

Not sure on its relative popularity, and I've never done it as an aid route, but Spiderfly at the bluffs is a thin crack accessible from above and I imagine would satisfy your other criteria as well

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
