In t minus 8 days my buddy and I will be making our first trip to the Red. I bought the guide book, it all looks AMAZING. So very excited!!!

We're looking to keep it to sport routes. I want to get on some steep, but being from MN, my steep endurance may be lacking. I recently broke into 5.12a. We got three days to get as much mileage as possible.

What routes/areas would you recommend as "MUST CLIMB" in the 5.10 - 5.12b range? What areas will give us the most concentration of quality sport routes?

Final question: What toppings MUST I try on my Miguels Pizza?

Thanks

Edited to Add: I also read about the closing of Roadside Crag to climbing. Any news on a possible re-opening soon?

Fuzzy Undercling on Military wall. So much fun. I can't remember what it was rated i think 11-something but it was a lot of fun. Also go check out the area called the Chocolate Factory. I went on my last day and wish I hadn't because I was fried from climbing for too many days in a row. There was great stuff there.

Also I'm a MN climber as well. I'm not sure where else you have climbed but when I went to RRG for the first time it blew my mind. The camping at Miguel's, climbing and the people were all great. Have Fun.

It was a lot of fun. Will definitely have to make a return trip.

Where do you go in MN? We could meet up sometime.
