My experience in this category is certainly lacking but one of the routes I really enjoyed that isn't on your spray list is Cheetah. Its neighbor is supposedly pretty badass as well.

Cheetah is super nice, but short. Cosmic Trigger is bad ass too, even with the broken hold.

There are so many amazing routes, obviously, Dustonian alone has named 22 routes in this thread.

For me, the 3 best 5.12s in the Red (mixing styles and grades) would be:

Mercy the Huff
Orange Juice
Stunning the Hog

About 15 routes are barely edged out and get honorable mention, but those are mine. Mercy wouldn't be on there if I wasn't trying to span grades, Jesus Wept or 8-ball would be.

I 2nd most of the routes listed already, but here's some I didn't see:

American Dream @ Darkside
Prometheus Unbound and Jesus Wept
The 12a at the Inner Sanctum is awesome...it's "Golden Boy-lite"
Hellraiser
Paradise Lost
Mule, Gung Ho, Reliquary, Tissue Tiger

I've heard Hot for Teacher is really good also
