What are some of your favorite routes in IC that have varied movement on them? Not talking about the same move over and over for 80 feet, but the good routes that switch things up on you.

I go to the creek for the unvaried, I want to do the same jam, over and over tell my heart or arms give out.

Dos Hermanos is one of my favorites there for that reason. Fingers with feet, pure splitter ringlocks, steep hands and a big hands/fist roof. A bit of everything!

Nuclear Waste on the far right of S.C. Buttress gets 1st sun, and is quite varied.  thin hands to hands then a crack switch to some thin stuff, then another switch back to some hands to the finish.

+1 to all of the above, though I'd add Your Mother on Scarface (corner around to the left), Ladies First on Original Meat, and Crack Attack on Battle of the Bulge.

Kitchen Sink! It's at Optimator Wall. Absolute four star classic. I remember placing bomber stoppers on this one.

Columbian Hit Man at Scarface is another route that has you wondering where you are climbing, then look back and see the Six Shooters. Climbs like something at the New River Gorge; I was happy to have stoppers up there. Definitely a favorite of mine at the Creek.

I think Low Spark on Sparks Wall is varied (particularly since it is so long). 

Tube Steaks Tomorrow on 2nd Meat Wall.

Go Sparky Go on Sparks Wall. Annunuki on the Optimator Wall. MC Hammers on the Cliffs of Insanity. These are all fun will some bouldery, a-typical creek moves

Sting at Petrified Hornet.

And Curiosity of course. Are you curious?

Varied route at Indian Creek = at least three faceholds.  Super cryptic, hard onsight!

Agree to many above, others: (some are just more changing size than non crack type movement) Crack Attack, Nagasaki, Cube steaks, Bad rad duality, Unnamed fingers through fists on Blue Gramma, Pit bull terror,  Revenge of the rock gods.

Electric at Power Wall is short and has basically one or two moves of each size from fists at the start to tips at the anchor.

+1 for Columbian Hitman. A thing of beauty

Torque wrench, Broken tooth, Critics Choice are a few that come to mind
