This route, on the left edge of the south face of Dutzi Rock, looks better than it is. You can go all the way to the top, or stop at a bush w/ rap slings. This small bush is a sketchy rap anchor.


Far left side of the south face. A 3-bolt 5.9 face climb is just to the right (Suzie's Lip Cheeze).


Good gear & rests for a beginner leader. Medium cams are helpful.


OK to free solo for a markoff. Feb 25, 2004
I would guess that the name is also a nod to the Suzie Cream Cheese character on Frank Zappa's "Freak Out" debut album from 1966. Are there any other Zappa-inspired route names out there? Feb 25, 2004
Brian, I wouldn't give him that much credit. Feb 25, 2004

Not especially memorable, but the arch at the bottom is kinda cool. One star out of five. Feb 25, 2004

The first Frank Zappa and Mothers Of Invention album was "Freak Out!" from March 1967. The song "Son of Suzy Creamcheese" is from the second album called "Absolutely Free" from October 1967.

Other Zappa inspired climbs? Here's a few at Joshua Tree -

Cruising For Burgers, Uncle Remus, Penguin In Bondage, Zomby Woof (sic), Central Scrutinizer, Be-bop Tango, Conceptual Continuity, 200 Motels, Why Does It Hurt When I Pee? Feb 25, 2004
True, but she appears earlier in the last two track (and on the record sleeve) of Freak Out.

Not a bad list (I can't believe I forgot 200 Motels), but I'm surprised there's no "Help I'm a Rock" around somewhere. Feb 26, 2004
