Description 

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.

Location 

Starts just right of Jug Mania near the left end of the Celebrity Flake outcropping.

Protection 

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.

I have climbed this a few times and I would have to say the rock quality and gear is very good and safe. Just my impression.
