How long is the approach to this crag? The Handren guide I think says 30 minutes. Is that accurate?
Do you start from the same place as for climbs on Windy Peak (S Face)?

30 minutes is accurate if you're a fast uphill hiker, 45 minutes might be more likely... Park in the same locale as if you're going up to the South Face.

As noted in the Handren guide, rappelling The Lovely Bones makes for a pretty pleasant descent for routes in the vicinity of Diet Delight. Three raps with a single 70m rope; watch the rope ends! The top anchor is a bit hard to find, but we built a cairn on the ledge above that should make it a bit easier.
