Now, I am also new to aid climbing, but I believe that Moonlight Buttress in Zion, UT goes at 5.9 C2... I know Jason Campbell did an all free onsight...

i've been trying to train for big wall as well. What I ended up doing is aiding free routes. They are great practice. Some moron bolted a 5.12 so close that I was able to aid it. Then I moved on to some other free route that might have been C2 due to the mankiness of the pro and the single copperhead someone else had placed previously. Just make sure that you're not going to be blocking too many people by aiding popular routes at peak climbing times.

If you are anything like me you will get bored leading C1 and C2. It isn't a whole lot of fun. After you get the basics down go do some nailing aid routes. They are alot more fun.

I've heard The Nose(5.9 C1) on ElCap is supposed to be a pretty decent climb.

Where are you? Asking for every clean aid line in the world is asking a bit much.
