Description 

Start up the crispy rock to the first bolt of Afternoon Delight. Instead of following the crack, stay right on the bolted slab. Climb over easy stone, trending right towards the arete. The angle gradually kicks back as you step around the right side. Pull through a sequence of fun steep jugs, step around the left side again, and clip the anchors.

Location 

Middle of Gold Wall, between Afternoon Delight (same start) and Whine & Cheese

Protection 

12 bolts including anchors (book recommends a 1" cam between bolts 4 and 5, but it is not at all necessary)

This is the best sport route under 5.10 at Ozone, in my opinion.

The description is not acurate. Afternoon Delight uses the first bolt of Kung Fu. Not the other way around. Kung Fu was put up a couple of years before Afternoon Delight.

Be aware that the last bolt before the anchors on Kung Fu is loose and spinning. I had a nut tool and tried to tighten the nut and hanger, but the bolt itsel is spinning in the rock. I may try and get out to rebolt the move but it might be a while.

I enjoyed this route immensely. For those hungover days when hard projecting isn't happening, but you still need to get that heart rate up enough to get the beer out of your system, this is the route to climb.

Loved the gradual increase in overhang, along with the abundance of perfect jugs and interesting movements. 10/10 climb!
