bitch with a broomstick


Follow well spaced bolts up the ladder like slab to a closer to vert finish on small edges. Easier to climb right of the bolts near the top where the bigger holds are.


On The 15' portion of the Tunnel Wall that faces NW toward the back of the Alcove. The anchors are at the right end of an obvious ledge system 65' up.


5 bolts, rap anchor

Geez....Mike or Bobby, where is your imagination? Couldn't you come up with a decent name? Turn off the South Park reruns and pick up some quality literature. Better luck next time.

Hey, Ben where's your sense of humor, pull the stick out of your ass and lighten up a bit.

Ben this route went in circa 1994 I believe. South Park debuted in 1997, maybe if you had said Beavis and Butthead I would have chuckled. Nice try though. The name refers to the massive cleaning campaign this route under went, it was literally swept off with a broom. Plus if you had been lucky enough to know the late Bobby Model you probably wouldn't have said that.

I like Mike's route names. They've given me a chuckle more than once.

Plus, naming probably gets difficult when you've put up as many routes as Mike has! Thanks for all the $$$/hard work/quality climbs Mike!
