Got addicted to finger sizes in the creek last winter. Any suggestions for Red Rock?

Dog police would be a strong contender for moderate fingers. 

Strong folks say seduction line, although I haven't been on it, so I can't really comment.

It's almost impossible to compare the two venues but I recommend voyager (last pitch), Gobies for Gumbies, and the last pitch of Cold Front. They're so different than creek finger cracks that it's hard to compare but there is some finger jamming involved. Others that come to mind are basically all of the rainbow wall, blood line and night crawler. If you're here to work on a certain technique it's all about the lay back finger cracks and face climbing. No true splitters here.

Thanks for the suggestions so far, lots of great looking routes. 

Definitely hoping to make it over to j tree for a couple of days as well.

Small Purchase comes to mind. Also, I was wallking out by the Monument and saw what I think is Lizard Locks, an impressive splitter finger crack. Too hard for me, but you might like it.

Well, according to one poster, the best finger crack in RR is Bloodline. It is indeed good. Also worth checking out; Chinese Handcuffs, Lizard Locks, Spark Plug, Wholesome Fullback, Out of Control, Dog Police and This Buds For You... all great!

Wholesome Fullback = great way to get to the good stuff on Our Father.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
