spontaneous combustion if you are tall
hot beach if you have endurance (no hard moves)
New vernacular is a good entry as well at new gym

Climbing at the Belvedere crag near Nago with a great view of the northern end of Lake Garda and the town of Torbole sul Garda below. June 2013.

Another vote for Heavy Weather. Really fun route. Also, I recently climbed Helter Skelter and really enjoyed that route too. Apparently originally rated 12b and listed as 11d here on MP so call it 12a.

My dogs got ups yo!

Freeform at Sand Gulch! It's actually pretty steep by Shelf standards. A perfect techy route down low and steep for about 30 feet for the upper half.

I would recommend Hot Beach or Blade Runner but my first 12 at Shelf was Heavy Weather.

I'm not sure if you get 12 points for Pick Pocket. It is a good suggestion though. The bulge on Pick Pocket is powerful and similar in difficulty to some of the other cruxes on routes mentioned previously in this thread. The difference is that Pick pocket is so short. It's over before you know it. On Heavy Weather, Hot Beach, and others you will have to do cruxes similar in difficulty while carrying a pump.
