I agree. The gear is good but spaced and a bit fiddly. Need to be moderately competent at placing wires for this one. Oxbow is another good beginners route at Camels hump but I think it's a little runout to the first placement (easy climbing).

Left of grey arete is Limbo which seems to see quite a bit of beginner traffic. It's a long really easy climb, a bit mossy though. Also while at Camels SZE and Drain Pipes make good beginner top-ropes.
