|I had always heard this referred to as 5.13+, and now that you, DTP, are on the mend, don't you think you really should start with the sit start boulder problem to Gollum?|

I've actually put significant effort into that line, calling it Drag Queen Sit Start. After the opening V7? boulder problem then the traverse I could never pull the crux of White Queen. It is actually kind of fun for a new challenge, but unfortunatly the difficulty is dependent on where you traverse across the wall. I traversed across where it was the easiest and I could still clip the 1/2" bolts from below, this way I thought it was 13c. If you traversed slightly higher with the linkup bolts at your waist, it just might make the original 14a/13d grade.
Dairy Queen I think is only slightly harder than Red Queen. Starting on Frog Prince is easier than the start to Thru the Looking Glass, then there are some hard moves on the traverse. So ~12c/d to get into the boulder problem.
