This shouldn't be a variation, everyone should take this true line. Follow the rib directly to the first belay, the big moves on big holds are perfectly protected.

Awesome juggy moves through the roof, well protected by what is more like a friend 2.5, not 3 as mentioned in the guidebook. Would definately do this as the preferred start if you lead HVS comfortably. Gilby lowered off after first pitch.
