Dualing Imoen at 7 (as Canon), where to level with minimal traps/reloads?

I'm making a Dwarven Fighter/Cleric to run the canon party with and my intent is to dual Imoen at level 7 to keep up with the Canon. The problem is that if I do that, I seem to remember roughly starting Baldur's Gate not long after. Are there any particular quests/areas (other than the basilisk map) that I should save that will allow me to get her level up quickly while also minimizing the amount of traps I will encounter?

    As I plan out my first full BG EE to BG 2EE RP'ing Single-player playthrough, this is really bothering me too. I want to be as RP-accurate as possible, but at the same time, I prefer to play 'as blind as possible'. I have played a full playthrough of BG EE already, and I am currently involved in 2 BGEE MP games too, so clearly I cannot erase my memory of what I know, but I prefer to make decisions ingame for entirely roleplay choices, and avoiding specific quests, farming xp for Imoen etc, seems hugely metagamey.

    I even considered dropping Imoen altogether and getting another thief, which would actually be a bit easier to explain RP-wise and still be consistent for the beginning of BG 2. But I really like Immy, and don't particularly like the other thieves...

    Ankhegs, Sirines on the lighthouse map and Basilisks are the quickest and safest ways to get several thousand XP quickly and (with a bit of preparation) safely for dual classing.

    Saving the Sirine and Ankheg map until after she duals is essential.

    [Spoiler]Ya I had to do all of candlekeep without a thief there too. That hurt, I did more resting in that little area than I had done in other chapters combined. I was primarily using Yeslick or my Dwarven Wizard Slayer PC to open most things/trip most. And I had Yeslick running the find traps spell. Still it was a nightmare.[/Spoiler]
