Surprisingly this route is one of the few that doesn't get any stars in the Enchanted Tower guide. I found it to be pretty good with fun movement and good stone. Only drawbacks are the clips seemed awkward and broke up the flow, and you don't end up clipping the last bolt, traverse right to shared anchors with Frodo.

I was also surprised that this didn't get any stars in the Tower guide; I actually that it was a better route than either of the routes to the right or left. Fun climbing.
