Description Suggest change

While this route is basically a silly linkup, it does add a few extra feet of climbing and a tricky sequence to Red Queen. So I found it worth doing if you're looking for a new challenge at the Tower.

Start up on Frog Prince (aka Babies) to just above the second bolt. From here a few obvious holds start the traverse right leading to a tricky move on poor pockets to gain Red Queen at it's third bolt (not including the belay bolt). From here rest if you can before pulling the powerful or dynamic crux of Red and White Queen.

Not sure why the guide considers this route as slightly easier than the standard Queen lines. I found it slightly harder than Red Queen and quite a bit harder than White Queen, because of the extra time and distance on the overhanging wall.

Location Suggest change

Start up the first two bolts of Frog Prince, then traverse right until you join up with Red Queen.

Protection Suggest change

8 Bolts. In addition to the standard bolts I clipped the 3rd bolt on Frog Prince with a long sling and the linkup bolt on Drag Queen.
