Taken after the FA. The photo doesn't do the steep...


I Thought We Were Bros Bro is a left leaning, overhanging, and sequential hand crack. Jam your way up on a flared crack with big moves and the occasional face hold.

This thing protects well but might be a hard one to onsight since I found it to be really sequential with a lot of sucker holds that will make it a lot harder than if jamming.

A no excuses, hard, trad limestone route.

Named after what was said before a friend was about to head up the thing for the his first attempt. "I thought we were bros bro." I guess he felt like he was being thrown to the wolves.


The left leaning crack that is the first route to the right of the crack that is formed by the barrel and its adjacent wall (Squirrel).


Gear to 3". Chain anchors set to the right of the top of the climb. Placed to here to make it possible to clean the entire route without requiring a second.
