Pony Express. The OW part isn't too long or too hard, but it keeps the crowding down on the 2nd pitch.

Isn't 'favorite offwidth' an oxymoron?

Your mom!

Just kidding...in reality, the second to last pitch of Pervertical Sanctuary on Long's Peak. Incredible exposure & position, nice variety of moves (hands and fists to a long section of 4-5 inches which involve stemming, liebacking, and arm/knee jams) while still retaining that grunting quality. Although some might claim that it's not a "real" offwidth. Which may be why it's my favorite.

Well she also said layback moves. Maybe the OW part goes with a laybeack. I know some people layback the one I mentioned too.

I love Crescent Crack in Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah. Old School 5.7 ..... catches alot of 5.9 leaders off guard....(and sends 5.7 leaders whimpering home).

Also, the Trough pitch on the Thumb, another 5.7......

Kor-Ingalls route, Castleton Tower..... 5.9+, not too bad if you lay it back and then stem on some crystals....but you still have an unprotected 5.8 chimney above.....

Fantasia at Vedauwoo was by far the coolest one I've ever had the pleasure of. Or, as it were, had it's pleasure with me. I love the rating - 5.10, then downrated to 5.9 when the locals learned how to do OW technique. Classic. I can't figure out how the heck to protect it on lead... and pass the pro. But then again, it'd be awfully difficult to fall out of.
