Seasoned in the Sun is would make a great warm up for a day of 5.10 climbing at the Chief, and in some ways is more enjoyable than Exasperator: no finger buckets/pinscars, bouldery crux at bottom and super-sustained hands at top, all in a cool, rarely visited part of the Grand Wall "base" area. Highly, highly recommended.
From the base of the Grand Wall, where Apron Strings, Exasperator, and Peasant's Route all start, hike left along the base of the cliff (the Flake Escape start to the Grand is over here, too). It's always farther than I remember, but keep going: you can't miss the beautiful splitter going straight up from the trail, which peters out pretty quick after that.
