Great protection on "Afternoon Delight", 11/13/201...
Choose your own adventure on this unlikely wall, with a variety of ways to the top.
Afternoon Delight is a very pleasant face climb slashed with many diagonal cracks that run the entire width of the face. The route presents very little challenge in the way of difficult or cruxy climbing, so you won't mind a more frugal approach to gear placement.
Build an anchor on the trees 20 feet from the cliffs edge.
On the Lower Beer Walls, and about 40 feet to the left of Rockaholic on the face at the top of a steep embankment.
small to medium units. Brings a couple 20' cordelettes with you to build the anchor with.

There is more than ample and adequate cracks at the edge of the cliff to build an anchor in order to save the trees as much as possible.

A great warm up for the harder stuff, the pro is great and the climbing is steep and sustained but juggy, i thought i was in the gunks for a minute. On the stiffer end of 5.5, a great test piece for a beginning leader.

It's about as hard or easy as you want to make it. You have a ton of options. 5.5
