Easy Route Suggestion for the West Face of Moro

What route would you do in SEKI if you were wanting to do something fairly easy and haven't had much time on multi-pitch climbing?  I'm working on this answer and its a good one so as soon as I find some pics I'll let you know more..............

Here's some more....If you park on the right side, right in the beginning of the Moro Rock Parking Lot you'll see the old bathrooms. Go down that way, West, as the hill starts to funnel into kind of a brushy gully. Keep going down and heading to your South. You'll come to a long slab going down and from there you go over to where it ends in a bush on a ledge. From here you go up the 'Link', up the face to the corner, around and up along the ledge to' Zocalo Ledge'. From this Big Ledge you start up the 'Offramp' route several pitches with good belays to the Stairs. Overall, there may be a move or two of 5.7 in there with some nice exposure, great belays and great views! 5 Pitches of some really great classic climbing.

I would be too scared to climb on the west face of moro and I'd do lunch bucket ledge on hospital rock! How about you Rene?
