What are your favorite 5.12 sport routes on the front range?

I thought "Undertow" was super fun. But it was also the first and last 5.12 I've climbed...

Wet Dream in CCC. Also the one and only 5.12 I've done in CO. Maybe we should re-name the forum...

The Great Escape in CCC is fantastic. Hero move after hero move

Mass Appeal is up the Poudre and is super long on stellar rock. 12a/b?

Starlight, Anarchitect, and Gym Arete also come to mind. Actually, there are a lot of great 12a/b routes at shelf.

Sucking My Will in CCC is another great 12. Power Bulge is brutal feeling, but still a 12. Twitch is fun, and feels a lot more like a 12 then Anarchitect. Open Space Cowboy is an underclimbed classic, and Redneck Hero is an overclimbed classic.

Archangel 12c, Red Limit 12d, Tell-Tale Heart 12b and Sequential 12a (OK, this is a gear route but the gear is good, obvious, plentiful, easy to place and the climb is overall like a sport route movement wise).

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
