Want to hear thoughts on best routes at this grade in the Moab area. Why? What makes it your favorite as opposed to the other splitter crack right next to it? Thanks

Infrared at Big Bend has an incredible pitch that climbs through a big roof while not really climbing like an overhang.  (Easy for the grade)

Sacred Ground on Castleton has a great first pitch finger crack and the crux is wild calcite "candle wax" pinching. 

Both are super routes. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
