This takes the cool handcrack in a left-facing corner between Cliff Hanger and Spike. Start in a crack on the left side of the Adrenalyzer pinnacle and wander up to the base of the dihedral. The corner is basically vertical and sucks whatever gear you throw into it. At the top, reach around to the right and clip the anchors atop Spike.
Standard gear rack with medium to large cams or hexes. Two bolt anchor with rings on the right atop the adjacent route Spike.

I believe this is called "Sick Minds Think Alike" in the Hubbel guidebook. (why are people renaming routes that are already published? This just leads to confusion?) Anyway, there are some cool moves in this corner, requiring stemming, minimal chimneying, hand jams, and a fair amount of technique. Can be TRed easily from Spike

Doug, Hubbel's guides are notoriously inaccurate. Considering that the person who posted this route is the one who did the FA, I would say that this is just another case of Hubbel being wrong. (Check out the Table Mtn section of his Front Range Crags guide to see how bad it can get - entire sections of cliffs incorrect)

Fun jams, seemed a little harder than other Table 8s. You only need pro up to a #2 Camalot.

David, why on Earth would you quote Hubbel's guide as some kind of authority? Hubbel has always named cracks that were never climbed. His first book to the Platte was called The Brown Book of Lies. No FA parties are listed usually.
