Climbed Traveler Buttress, yesterday... I couldn't subject myself to the 5.9 off-width at the start of the 2nd pitch, so I lead what I think is the 10b variation.

The guidebook shows the thin crack to the left of the OW as being 10b. When I lead on it, it seemed obvious to bridge between the OW and the crack (left hand in the crack, right hand side-pulling the OW). Here's my question; does anypne know if the intent of the 10b variation is to stay completely in the crack?/ Was I doing a third, potential variation?

My ego needs to know wether or not I lead 10b :D

So you're asking if the 5.10b variation involves using the 5.9 crack? :?:

I just did the 9 OW and thought I would stay on the original line. I think you can lead 10b. Good job, keep it up.

I climbed it the same way you did, since I didn't bring any big gear. The two cracks are so close tegether that it'd be quite contrived not to use the edge of the OW IMO.
