Aubrey on Cronus


Cronus: The leader of the Titans, who overthrew his father Uranus only to be overthrown in turn by his son, Zeus.

-This one is around the corner to the right of the Zeus Arête.

Stand-starts high (stand on a folded pad) on a good crimp rail. Get thin (smear) feet and blast up high and left-ish to the next good hold. Follow through to the massive break...
-Note- the large block that sits atop the break shifts ominously. You can chance it and go direct over this, or traverse right to better ground for the easy top out. Your call.

-The opening move could go at V5, let me know what you think. 5-6, either way it’s a great line!

Thanks Kristoffer, I appreciate the feedback. I feel like it is V6 as well. Any other opinions on grades really helps the consensus process, so keep 'em coning!
