Looking for some feed back on routes at Red River. Im heading there the first week of May. Looking for 4 star routes in the 11a- 12a range. Not so much the "classics, but the other stellar routes that get overlooked.
Pockets, Jugs, Crimpy. No bouldery routes Please. Thank's in advance!

hmm.....ro shampo is a semi-classic on the roadside crag, but it could be considered bouldery....its on the easy side of 11d/12a. i believe torrent falls and the motherlode have some good routes (know the motherlode does! don't pass it up!)

I have to agree. I think both places have plenty of routes to fill your plate. Torrent Falls has the classic red style climbing. Overhanging jug hauls.
