For those who have not seen this else where, here is the skinny on what the 6,000 Salad Bowl photo means to the old climbers that know:
Quoting from Ed Webster:

"6,000 SALAD BOWLS III 5.8
This was the name (really) of a nick-nack shop across the street from the Eastern Slope Inn in the early 1970s. You had to be there. Besides STANDARD ROUTE, this is the only other full length climb up Mt. Willard, and although a wandering line (beginning near the base of TIME TRAVELLER and ending with the upper, white streak of STAR TREK), it was also apparently the first route up the main friction slabs. From the bottom of STANDARD ROUTE, walk right 60 feet to the base of a clean slab below the left end of a large overlap.

HISTORY: Jeff Pheasant, Stoney Middleton, & Al Rubin made the first ascent on July 23, 1973, and found several old pitons on the lower slabs."
