Starts on the left side of Deception Wall. Climbs up very easy (5.7?) terrain to reach an intermediate 2-bolt anchor. Traverse right 10ft to a bolt with a short chain. Pull some burly moves through 20ft of overhanging and somewhat broken rock.


13 bolts

I'm pretty sure Late for Dinner is the 11a to the left of Just Dessert, up on the ledge that can be approached by hiking around. The 10c approach to Late for Dinner is "Side Dish", listed here as part of "Side Dish + Just Dessert".

I think I saw the route you're describing here yesterday, that starts up very easy terrain (5.6? 5.5?) and then heads through the overhang, where a bolt has a chain extension. Would you say it goes at 11a? Looked cool, but don't know the name or grade. May 2, 2014

The first half of this route is called "Der," the 5.7 you are describing the "lower half", and the second upper half is called "ailed," 10+ and the complete is "Derailed." 5 clips to first chain anchors, 13 clips to top chain anchors on ledge above overhang. Jun 13, 2014
The top section of this is overhanging and sustained. Great moves. Definitely "burly." Jun 1, 2015

First part of climb is Der (5.6) at 5 bolts. If climbing the second portion of the climb (Ailed - 5.10c), consider skipping the anchors and look for the bolt with 2 links to the right of the Der anchors. Clip this instead and pull up on an overhanging, sustained 5.10 climb (~8 bolts). Route is hard to clean on rappel as a single pitch (easier if broken into 2 rappels).
