Description

Starts with awesome gear and is clean. It is pretty awesome climbing with a sort of awkward move to get off the ledge about 2/3 of the way up, and its well protected. The Squamish Guide book says this route is 5.8 and I thought it was a little soft even for that rating. Regardless, it was really fun.

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 Gollum/Sour Grapes (5.7). Just to the left is the start for Bilbo Baggins. Around the corner to the right is Frodo's First Step.

Protection

Gear to 2 inches. Two bolts at the top. Walk off left.

This definitely feels like straightforward 5.7 crack climbing. Great for new leaders or folks getting back in the game. Only wish it was longer. Aug 23, 2017

The original description was for a route possibly once known as "Sour Grass" but that is called "Gollum" in Bourdon's guidebook. This is the 5.7 that starts in the deep corner. I have changed the description to include what y'all have said, but kept the grade 5.9 because that's what it gets in the guidebook.

Edit 10/17: Changed grade to 5.8 Aug 14, 2015

I agree that the description of this route is really confusing. The route starts with awesome gear and is clean. It is pretty awesome 5.7 climbing with a sort of awkward move to get off the ledge about 2/3 of the way up. I wouldn't call it 5.9 at all. The Squamish Guide book says this route is 5.8 and I thought it was a little soft even for that rating. Regardless, it was a really fun. Jul 5, 2015

In my opinion this is the best crack climb at Burgers and Fries. There is only one 5.9-ish move at about 2/3rds up, and its well protected, the rest is pretty cruiser 5.7 crack climbing. Contrary to the description, the bottom is clean and alot of fun. Jun 17, 2014
