Bullet The Brown Cloud follows the arete that forms the West face of the large dihedral hosting Deck Chairs on the Titanic. Start off with a funky move to a wide ledge and the first clip. Work the face edges and the arete simultaneously to catch the second clip - this is an interesting series of moves needing some precision in the foot-work. Pull onto a big ledge from the far left side, grab a clip, one more move, and the anchors.
This is a nice problem, a little funky, but worth doing if you are up in this sector. Joe Desimone once did this by straddling the arete the entire way, which had the advantage of avoiding the two ledges. If the standard way starts to feel harder than easy 5.11, then try moving left along the angling edge. This will just about deposit you in the dihedral.

I missed the footholds and one handhold around the right hand side of the arete and got spit off of this my first two lead attempts- felt hard at the 5.11a grade, mostly due to slipperiness, but probably also due to my own ineptitude. Keep an eye to the right if you go for this one.

One of the better routes I've done at N. Table and definitely challenging for the grade. Sequential, balancy moves and tricky footwork through the crux if you're sticking to the arete.
