[Hide Comment] Variation 1: In the middle, above the gentle right-to-left ramp, instead of closely following the bolt line for Crime and Punishment, climb directly up the less-featured slab between "Crime" and the obvious left-facing corner of the route "Glutton for Punishment".
. . (perhaps better done on Top-Rope after first leading the route).
. . (Fits better with the overall difficulty of the route, but I guess bolting it would be a "squeeze").

Variation 2: Above the top of the slab, aim for 8-10 feet left of the top anchor, then traverse right to anchor.
. . (better done on Top-Rope after first leading the route -- just a way to milk some additional climbing from it).
. . (perhaps not as difficult or as interesting as the main route). Nov 9, 2017
