Afternoon Delight isn't as well known as Blonde Ambition, but it's one of the great moderates at Sunset nevertheless. Pumpy for the grade, it has plentiful protection and makes a nice warmup for the harder lines in the Celebrity Flake area.
Starting just right of the Jug Mania arete, move up the face through sometimes-slopy holds to a bulge. Climb through the bulge using one of two cracks, then continue up to a prominent crack system. Follow the crack to the top.
Starts just right of Jug Mania near the left end of the Celebrity Flake outcropping.
Takes mostly medium gear, up to #2 Camalot or equivalent. Ring anchors at the top.

Finishes in a pretty good chimney with duel cracks in back, which seems rare at Sunset.

I love this route as a warm-up. Really thought provoking climbing in a couple of places for the grade.

I found the protection at the bottom to be mostly poor rock quality that I wasnt sure if it would hold but thats just me I guess. It was fun nonetheless.
