The groove at the bottom is dirty, but otherwise isn't that bad. There isn't any pro until you are almost at the ledge above, but the climbing seems pretty secure (for a vee-groove). The crack above is great, if a bit muddy.
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. Around the corner to the right is Frodo's First Step (5.5), which could be used as an alternate start to Bilbo Baggins.
Gear to 2 inches. Two bolts at the top. Walk off left.

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.

I don't understand the description of this climb. It is clean, easy, and 5.7 - still fun
