Description 

This is a linkup of all the crux sections for smoking joe, club foot, and sick boy. Start with the opening moves for Sick boy, head left to the last fixed draw on clubfoot, and then to a very thin move left again to do the last moves of Smokin Joe Tahoe. Finish at the chains for smokin Joe. Might just be a 13a, or very stiff at the grade.

Location 

starts on Sick boy, the route second from the right. Follow the draws always trending left.

This route is much harder than 12d I think. It would be stiff for 13a! Still, it is a amazing route!

I think this route is 13b. The crux of Sick Boy is a singular V5/6 move, follow that up with the V5 Club Foot transfer to Smokin Joe, and then into the V4/5 crux of Smokin Joe. It's quite a bit of steep climbing and despite the jugs everywhere there's no spot to get all the pump out. Really fun and powerful climbing!
