Need some beta on easy aid at the glass. I'm looking to head up this saturday and I don't want to step out of my aiders until i hit 5.6 or 5.7 at the top. Alot of routes show sections of 5.9 eyebrows near the top (psychedelic delusions of the digital man) and my question is can that 5.9 be aided or should I just rap from the top of the first pitch. Any other suggestions on routes that don't leave the aiders. I'm pretty new to aid and don't mind getting 3 or 4 pitches off the deck, I just don't feel ready to step out onto the rock with the overkill rack that I know my "just incase" thinking is going make me carry. I'll be soloing too if that helps. Thanks guys.

check out the glass menagerie you canstay in your aiders through the first three or four pitches with the exception of a ledge travers at the top of pitch one and since it all goes free at way hard the anchors are pretty bomber
