It's likely few climber go there, but it may affect the adventurous.
Note: watch out for rattlesnakes; they're around, so don't do anything stupid.
Be advised that whatever guidebook you use, it's sometimes very frustrating to find the route that you're looking for; don't hesitate to ask other people around about what route they're doing. Top rope access is via an easy trail at the far right side of this area or via a steep class 4 chimney scramble between Interface and Protection from The Virus (in the big cove in the middle of this area).
Addendum: also note that as this area has become popular, a number of the more popular routes have gotten polished due to repeated ascents to the point where the old ratings may feel sandbagged.
Lying at the east side of N. Table Mountain, and the first area one comes to after the brisk hike, this area is usually popular. It starts at the east side of the main wall at Table. Just to its right is an obvious top rope access trail that passes just by the routes designated above as "Far Right - Around the Corner."
