Iím contemplating driving to looking glass to do some easy aid soloís this weekend. I havenít been there before so Iím flying blind. Iím looking for something that goes clean and if I have to step out of the aiders Iíd like to be on no harder than 5.7 terrain. Anything sound like it might fit the bill?

Thanks in advance :)

How easy are you looking for? Cornflake Crack goes free at 5.11a and makes for a really nice aid solo. Every piece is bomber the whole way up with one long move on the second pitch. Very casual and can be done as one long pitch with a monster rack or back cleaning your gear.
The first pitch of invisible airwaves is also C zero if you stick clip the first bolt and ends on a massive belay ledge with a killer view.
As I recall the first pitch of Creatures of Waste could also be done at C zero.
Glass Menagerie could be considered 'easy' but is still a big undertaking for an aid solo due to its length and complexity.
Have fun out there. The North Side is an amazing place!
