Rodent Ranch has several good climbs in that range.. From 10a - 13d. Morning sun, Afternoon Shade. There are 3 .10's, a few great 11s, several good 12s. Notable ones... Mr. Jingles (10c), Black Mouse Squeaks (10a), Callalo (11a), Pika Angst (11c) Black Elk Speaks (12a), Basted Pikas (12c)
Fucoidal fits the range. Although some of the 10s can be a tad greasy (most popular crag in Logan), they are still good climbs. Make sure to do Begging for bolts (Enduro 11a), Limestone Cowboy (12a), and Adios Amigos (12a). Late Afternoon shade with mid day sun.
385 is filled with quality 11s, a few 12s, and pale face (best of its grade in the canyon?).
If you want to just climb solid 12s, Blacksmith Wall and Hardware Wall have the highest concentration of quality 12s. They are located in Blacksmith Fork Canyon (South of Logan). And of course, if you want cave climbing... check out China Cave. Quality, Although slick, routes for sure. Coast to Coast and The Oboe are two great cave climbs. The 'slab' section offers a couple 11s and several really good hard face climbs.
