Salad Bar once known as "The John Roskelly Show"

It is just left of Nipple Phyle. With top bolts and bolts to the top except for a blank middle, desperately needing a few cams to prevent any serious fall. A series of short cracks for the first two-thirds with an easier face climb for the last third.
An easier 5.10 ONCE you figure out the move. Just a beautiful, mixed, crack route. No crack lasts long, so you are sent to the next crack with a new type of move. Perfect for those starting out on the 5.10s as it continually engages you in altering your mode of movement.
Eds. according to richard berk, this "is what we called Salad Bar." "The route labeled "I" PVC is what we called The John Roskelly Show (a kind of uninteresting offwidth in a corner)."
Bolted route, except for a blank section through the middle that could leave a serious fall. A few small/medium size cams can quickly solve this problem.

Tricky 10a, but super climbing. Table seems to get a bad rap sometimes, but January climbing routes like this seems hard to complain.

The first hanger is now spinning. Also, I noticed the bolts on this route have some sort of apoxy slathered on them. For my own education could someone explain this to me?

A fun and easier variation is to go left into the crack at the first bolt... take a couple small/medium cams for the pro.

The crux is a few moves after the first bolt. There is a couple of crack moves 1 mantle and then some slab moves to finish the route.
This route is #102 in the guidebook, several routes left of Flight 67 to Stolckholm.
Protection [consists of] two bolts, a #2 cam and a #2 BD stopper.

A 0.3 Camalot fits perfectly in a horizontal crack at the bottom of the final slab/bolted section.
