Nice short route, but make sure to check the weather beforehand, I went in mid October and the rock was somewhat icy in a few spots.

103. Afternoon Delight 5.4 ∗∗

A great climb for beginners. Avoid the poison ivy that grows in the bushes above the talus.

Start: 25m to the right of The Dangler, on a low angle slab hidden by large basswood trees.

1. 40m Climb the slab to a ledge with large spikes. Continue up the inside of the narrow ramp past an overhang which is turned on the left. At the end of the ramp, climb a short easy wall and belay, to minimize rope drag and communications problems. Scramble up an obvious trail to the top.

History: FA: Richard Lamb (roped solo), Aug 1976, although it is possibly the route climbed by Ken and Jeremy Hunt in 1975, called Steptoe and Son.

Later in August, Richard Lamb fell off a new route he was attempting, again roped solo, between Vertigenous and Roller Bearings. He died as a result of his injuries in early September 1976.
