I did a link up from Narrowpathic into Dust (FA) potentially 13b. At the 5th bolt (under crux) traverse left into upper pod and clip first cable draw. I rested here and did not down-climb into Dusts no-hand rest. And then you do the crux of Dust. The rope drag is totally manageable with the long draws I have up there. In this link-up, you get a much more intense bottom and not near as good of pre-crux rest.

Doing TKO into Naropathic is pretty sweet as well. Lots of great moves in all these linkups Aug 24, 2017

A link-up can also be done from TKO into Dust. After you get past the business on TKO, you will clip off of the jog and then move up, but don't clip the draw above you, instead lean left and clip the draw on Textures. Then traverse above it, don't down climb and rest in the pod. Then from here you can traverse across Naropathic, and into Dust. This will place you above the good rest that people take in the pod before they do the crux of Dust. Don't down climb into the pod, just as if you were doing the Naropathic-Dust linkup. When I did this linkup (FA) the rope drag was not bad. Aug 12, 2017
