Brownian Motion  Sucess!

Same start as Captain except you climb twin cracks with Captain being the left one. Continue following twin cracks as they curve up and right. Good finger and ring locks get you onto the single crack in good rock to the top. Not near as cool as Jerry Brown but worthy. Easy scramble down climbers left. Can set a decent top rope via gear.

Captain Kronos  Sucess!

The obvious hand crack on the left side of the wall. Climb and jam good rock up the crack to the ledge just below the final summit block. Can set a decent top rope via gear here or if walking off, continue to the summit. Easy Scramble down climbers left.

Kronos sandbag  Sucess!

I don't know what the consensus is, but Captain Kronos is the hardest 5.7 I've ever done at Josh, and is a real sandbag. Don't know if anyone else agrees with that, but I've done at least 100 routes in the 5.6-5.8 range in the park, and this was the toughest. It was more like an old school 5.9.

Re: Kronos sandbag

You're absolutely right, Darin. It's solid 5.9. I changed the rating to 5.9+.

Re: Kronos sandbag

Totally agree on that one. The wider part mid way always fries me out just before the last crack/top out. I've yet to not have to hang for the last section above the horizontal cracks. And how about that start!
