Can any of you guys and gals recommend good 2-3 pitch climbing spots, in the 5.7-5.8 level?

I am looking to take my noob wife sometime this year, we live in Texas, and we are willing to drive far (anything worth while close to home is more desirable).

Thanks for your help!

From my experience, there aren't that many easy bolted routes, and there aren't that many multi-pitch bolted routes, so put them together and you don't have much at all. one place i could recommend is El Potrero Chico (Hidalgo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico). The potrero is world famous for it's multi-pitch sport lines, and there is a good number of moderate routes. I found the grades to be rather soft as well. Texas is a big state, so I don't know how far you are, but Hidalgo is about 2 1/2 hours from Laredo at the border. Someone else from the south might know better somewhere closer in the states but I would think this would be your best bet.
