Suggestions for practice aid?  (North_America: United_States: Utah: St__George)

So I'm coming back to Zion and surrounding area for the third time in my young but budding climbing career. This will mark the beginning of the 2007 climbing season for me. To the point - my "mentor" lives in Virgin, and he has since been leading lots of aid the last year or so. I want to spend a day or so just learning the very basics of it all and getting my feet wet.
Are there some routes anyone can recommend for easy aiding or maybe a bolt ladder somewhere to practice on? General thoughts about aiding for noobs? Luckily I do have this experienced leader to bug once I get to the area.

And yes I have read Freedom of the Hills.

To answer my own question... and to raise another one..

Maybe I'll just head to cerebrus gandarme and aid some of the hard splitters that are out there. Then we'd have a top rope to fool around on as well and make a cragging day out of it. Perfect! Between me and homeboy we'll have enough of the same size cams for the splitters.

Unless of course those routes are super popular in the spring. Anyone?
