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.
This route is located directly left of Bullet the Brown Cloud and directly right of Johns Adam's Adams Apple in the Brown Cloud Rocks Area.
Bring your standard rack. Make your own anchor at the top. It's right by the gully, so walking down is not bad at all.
There is now a Fixe ring bolt and bolt with chain anchor.

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!
