If this route were dry and a bit cleaner when I did it, I would probably give it three stars. This is a great 5.7 hand crack.
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, another great hand-crack). Just to the left is the start for Gollum. Around the corner to the right is Frodo's First Step
Standard Rack to 3 inches. Belay off trees, or (with a directional) off the two bolts to the right (above Bilbo Baggins

After watching friends try to live in the inside corner of the crack on the first half I found a way to stem up and avoid the dirty grovel. It makes the route very enjoyable and the hand crack at the top is great!

I thought the hand crack on the top of this climb was great. The chimney grovel is worth it! In the North East this would be a delightful little climb thanks to the high quality crack above. In Squamish where such crack is plentiful I can see why the grovel is not quite worth it, but it is such a nice hand crack.
