Stickin' It To The Man

This route climbs the arete right of Winter Warmer. Begin with stemming up the bolted crack just right of Winter Warmer. The route has gray hangers, shares no bolts with Winter Warmer, and is closely bolted. This is the easiest long pitch at Table. Steep too! Like all routes here, watch out for loose holds.
It is still possible to do Winter Warmer Right, but this means using some of the bolts on the new, discrete, Stick It To The Man.
This is the next route right of Winter Warmer and left of No Gumbies and Ugly Stick. The anchor is the same as Winter Warmer Right.
Ken drilled the twelve bolts and beefed up the anchor too. Then we did the FA party-style with friends and family.

David, sorry to disappoint you. I consider climbers to be good people. You've been led astray by one of the local guidebook authors who has a habit of naming all the cracks in any area, even though they've not been climbed. This crack leads to the one of the most rotten, overhanging, parts of the mountain. I don't have the Hubbel guide. Does it give the names of the first ascent party?
I'm guessing not. Also, I've done the nice lower part as a varition to No Gumbies, the bolt route just right. You should do the FA and then give it your own name on the Proj.

Nice long climb with sustained climbing, not just one 10 move.
