Did this last summer to approach hobbit book. On the R side of drug dome, start climbing just right of obvious black streak. The climb is 3 pitches, not 1. All three pitches have some 5.8. The 4th pitch takes you up in the woods to unrope. Continue up and cross the trail to hobbit book. I found this route spicy and definitely PG or R. It needs some more traffic to clean up grainy slab climbing.
