No, that's not a typo. This really is the world's tiniest route. You'll chuckle, but it's not "bad" per se- I've seen a lot worse. The rating is a guess- the guidebook calls it "5.stupid."
Up the slope from Dragon's Back is a Lilliputian route (a boulder problem, really) that can be toproped with some scrambling. It's on the shady, neon-lichen-covered north face.
If you really want to: finger-sized, 1 bolt, chains.

Bolt and chain anchors no longer exist.

I launched off on this thing with no gear. After reaching the shelf and looking up I decided to pull some up. 3" for the flake which won't protect you from hitting the ledge but might keep you from rolling onto your belayer.
2 bolts, chain anchors and OK. Worth it if you flaked your rope to do Dragons Back. Otherwise.... keep walkin'
