Austin at the base of the route
Plenty of rest ledges and big holds, although this face is pretty crumbly.
If you're taking people for their first climbing experience ever, this is the place. Otherwise, don't bother coming over here.
I usually take the whole group to the top with me, set up the TR and then we all rap down. If you have two guides, one can be at the bottom ready to fireman's belay.

A pair of quickdraws will [barely] get you over the lip. 50m rope is plenty.
