Really fun route. I agree with the PG13 rating, but the one 5.7 move is protected. Runout on easy secure knob pulling at the top.

You can set up a top rope on Darth Vaders Revenge and Orange man by traversing right at the top. But please be courteous of others on those routes - they are popular leads. Jan 12, 2011

While not a bad route, my big thought after climbing this was "Boring". Most of the climbing, esp. the second half, is on big knobs and feels like a gym climb.
Runout is on 5.6 with big knobs, Tri-cams and cams make most the top half feel safe. Aug 5, 2013
Not a bad route??? Is there a better 5.7 in TM? Aug 11, 2013

Just to name a few. (And I haven't done Hobbit Book yet) Aug 11, 2013
