only places I can think of off the top of my head that your can just hike to the top are Bongeater and Parleys

I may have more free time this year, so it would be cool to have a go to list of some easily accessible climbs to solo TR.

I'd be also ok with rope-solo aiding to get to the top for working it on TR.

Obscure crags are cool too.

The three places that come to mind besides Parleys are Dogwood Crag in BCC, Petes Rock on Mt. Olympus, and Red Rock in Draper. Of those I've only TR solo'd on Red Rock, but they all have easy access to anchors at the top.

Goodro's Wall: you can rappel in from above or you can aid solo up it.

If you are comfortable free soloing at 5.4, you can set up Le Creme De Shorts pretty easily via the route to the right (the name escapes me at the moment).

If you are comfy FSing at 5.7, then you can set up Touch of Teflon via the route to the right.

You can set up Winky and Waxman... via a short 5.5 FS handcrack (left) or an easy 3rd class scramble (right).

The first pitch of Crescent Crack is a pretty secure 5.7 FS which provides access to a decent 5.8 and a 5.10d.

You can set up a TR on Plumbline via an easy scramble around to the left (beware loose rock above the route).

Cranial Pr. has anchor potential at the base, allowing you to rope-solo (aid or free), and shares anchors with good 5.9s and 5.10s.

Bushwhack also has anchor potential at the base (hell, just sling the whole boulder).

Friends in death.
The Daffy's Shaft area of Black Peeler is a super easy area to TR solo with a small handful of routes (70m rope is nice). In that same area, but slightly obscure, are Black Duck and Eider Duck with others nearby. I forget, but you might have to climb Winter Diversion (easy moderate) to get up to the anchors (which are mank) but I'm pretty sure you can scramble around. There are a bunch of other routes in that area that are fairly easily TR-soloable, but expect a minor hike. Western Grebe is a low-commitment route with ample anchors to get the hang of actual roped-solo rope management. In Little there are a bunch of others if you get slightly creative and don't mind no-stars (who doesn't?). Cheers! Arie
