I did some weird linkup of a few routes, but I think it was closest to this one and it felt like a 5.4.

4 out of 5 stars Cute balancy climb

Went up the route the conventional way, until I got to the last move, and realized that even jumping for that last big hand hold wasn't going to happen. Took the Shorty Route: followed a flake out to the left with my feet about 6' (take care, if you fall you will swing, thankfully I didn't), then took a flake back right with my hands (it's mostly shoulder work, try to find tiny features for your feet), until I met the hand hold with my right.

3 out of 5 stars aptly-named climb

Don't worry about strength here, you just need balance and bravado. If you're new to climbing or aren't very stable, this climb might freak you out; but once you get over the fact that your hands are only there for a tiny bit of friction and moral support, you'll be fine.

Fascinated by the comments of people leading this route; I'll have to watch for someone doing that. Seems like there's no place for fingers, let alone protection.

Easy to protect but if you want to continue having a good life don't fall. Crux pretty much was at the bottom moving from the little flake to the shelf. Toprope it unless you're comfortable soloing 5.4

I did my first lead at QQ! It made me nervous because of all the ledges. I took my time and placed good gear, though. I'm happy that I did it.
