This route is the first line of bolts left of Centipede. The route starts easy, then the crux comes at about 2/3s height when making balance moves on small holds.


This is the first route to the left of Centipede. Descent is by rappel from a two bolt anchor.


6-8 bolts plus a two bolt rap anchor.

I could be mistaken, but if this is the route behind the large juniper tree, it's a John Burcham route. I believe he named it Red-Faced Cheeto Eater in honor of the guard in the Church parking lot....

Oppsss!! Just spoke with Burcham, this route is actually Church Nazi. Red Face Cheeto Eater (10-) is the finger crack to the right of Poop Tube.

Replaced the hangar on the last bolt of this climb. The old one had been smashed from rockfall.

I found this to be quite enjoyable...techy balancy crux up the arete and then moving left to the jug. Loose choss after that I guess but the first 2/3 are fun. I did pull a crimp off where the angle lessens just after the crux.
