Description 

Fun route with excellent friction and thin edges on nice slab. A shade easier than 'Too Many Rules' - but not as tightly bolted. It's a long way (of easy climbing) to the first bolt of 'Lawbreaker' - a possible alternative would be to clip the first bolt on JFMB. The crux (10+) is around the 2nd and 3rd bolt, the upper section eases significantly.

Location 

'Lawbreaker' is located between JFMB and 'Too Many Rules'

Protection 

6 bolts, shares mussy anchor with 'Too Many Rules'

single 70m rope

I felt the crux on Lawbreaker the harder of the 2 and spicier for sure.

i would say the actual crux is similar, but 'too many rules' is much more sustained. 'lawbreaker' eases significantly once it gets lower angle. 'too many rules' actually has another solid section before the anchor. definitely agree that 'lawbreaker' is spicier if only in terms of bolt count.
