I would vote for the AXS 12 speed. I think you can probably run wider cassettes for climbing without it spreading gears, but also might be better resale several years from now.
curious, how much are you paying for these?

Red and Force AXS are functionally the same, but getting the 12spd variant is most current, so that would put you in position to upgrade the Force crankset to Red if you really want the the weight savings of Red. Most of the extra weight of Force is located there at the crank, some in the brakes, but little at the derailleurs. Force AXS on the newer frame is the easy choice, IMO.
