Hey! Does anyone know of a shorter aid route, perhaps southern man or ten days after on the column, that has aid as difficult as the hardest pitches on zodiac? The idea is to get a feel of what the technical difficulties would be like on zodiac before I'm committed to el cap. It would suck to find out that I'm in over my head and have to bail. Anyway, any thoughts on this are appreciated! thanks,

nothing on the Zodiac is really "hard". Definately harder than the Prow or Leaning Tower, the two you mentioned are probably about the same dificulty. At the max if you are a poor aid climber you would maybe place ten pins(mostly angles and some rurps) and a few copperheads.
