Description 

Super fun line - classic for its grade. Climbs a shallow slippery dihedral that starts to feel downright difficult in the crux. Keep moving and everything eases up - stall out and you might be in trouble.

This is one route left of "Eat Drink and Beat Larry". Go to the question of balance pinnacle and go left past 4 routes to get to the buttress."Eat Drink.. " is the thin line that goes up about 55 feet on funky hangers. "Box Lunch" ascends the pretty dihedral to the left.

Protection 

8 bolts.

Note: in the 2005 Sharp End Shelf guide, this route is called Lou Raven's Rest and rated 10c/d. RM's description of Box Lunch seems more accurate.

Pretty cool route whatever it is now called. Great climbing into the corner, the finger tip lieback for three bolts was pretty exciting for me. It's not over after the crack either. I'll agree with Guy, it is sandbagged some at 10c/d. It might be 10d if you have the sequence just right. I left a little blood on this one.
