This route resembles more of an alpine type route with a chimney, chockstone small overhang, stemming, and jamming the crack. Well as close to alpine as North Table will ever get. This route is very well-protected. It's not the best route you will ever do, but it is a fun adventurous trad lead that is worth the time.
Noah, first off, nice job on the route description and putting in a picture, MP needs more of that. I'd be hesitant to claim that you were the first to climb this route. I think I've scrambled up it before, and I certainly wasn't the first. North Table has been around a long time with many old trad climbers climbing there, too.
This is a fun climb even if somewhat easy. It takes stuff up to a #2 Camalot, I used two. I placed a #4 near the top, but there is other gear, so it is no necessary to bring one. You can descend on the anchors for John Adams' Apple.

Cool chimney to a roof mantle, then two more easy mantles to bolted anchors. Run the first 15 feet out until you get under the roof. I put a BD #9 hex in and a BD #2 cam in, stemmed out, plugged a BD #0.5 cam, then mantled the roof. That was the only 5.6 section, and the rest is much easier, so just bring a light rack of cams. Definitely a fun route and very different for this area!
