Description 

This short crack is a good intro climb for new leaders. This may be a better way to get to the hand crack on Bilbo Baggins (5.9).

Location 

South of the Main Wall of Burgers and Fries. Head up a small side trail through the trees, and go right at the wall. You will come to a left-facing groove/dihedral. This groove is the start for Bilbo Baggins (5.9). Just to the left is the start for Gollum. Around the corner to the right is Frodo's First Step.

Protection 

Small rack to 2 inches. Two bolts at the top, though I recommend a directional if you are going to top-rope the route (to keep the rope out of the crack). You can walk off right (with a spotter at the bottom), or rappel off of trees.
