Get a partner in Camp 4 and go for Royal Arches.

Easy approach and moderate grade.
Bring extra water and a jacket.

Royal Arches for someone who has probably never climbed a multipitch? No.

Thanks for the recommendations, I found some fun up near Glen Aulin. Hopefully another trip to the valley when I’m a bit stronger.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
