Moonlight Buttress?

Hi, I've done a tiny bit of aid. I've read that Moonlight Buttress is the first aid climb for many people. How hard is Moonlight Buttress and how hard is the free climbing on pitch one? Run-outs scare me...

My aid experience is about 20-30 pitches of single pitch screwing around. A bit of the Mordor Wall on Cathedral, the Prow a few times on Cathedral, and the first five pitches of Touchstone at Zion. How much of a stretch would Moonlight Buttress be?

I was thinking about fixing the first four pitches of Moonlight Buttress the first day, and then trying for the top on day two. The C1 on Touchstone went very quickly for me. While the C2 seemed sketch. I hope the C1+ on Moonglight is more like C1 and not like C2.

My partner has experience following trad lines & has jumared rope lengths quickly. He's a smart guy.
