I am looking to practice some aid climbing in prep for an out-west road trip. I know climbs like Congratulations and Sometimes Crack can be aided, but what other lower difficulty aid climbs are there at the lake? Preferably a less popular area because I don't want to be that guy hogging a route for an hour as I slowly make my way up.
Well, you can attempt to aid any climb at the lake all from C1 to C-whatever.... Please no hammers, clean aid only-but I am sure you are thinking that already. I would suggest the Berkeley/Chicago/Evanston Township area. It think those routes could be what you are looking for.
