This is the first boulder that is recomended to anyone new to the area and looking for an afternoon session. Located right off of first street about half a block north/east of Whopee Wall, this erratic has a few good lines from V0 to V6ish. Landings can be protected easily with pads and the walk off is nice and mellow. As with all urban areas is Duluth, glass and bums can be an issue...
Just north/east of Whopee Wall on First Street West (about 1400 West First Street).
Start on Stump Chump (or just stand using the bomber undercling and huge left sidepull). Work up a move or two, then use that core strength to press into a wicked double gaston. Fancy footwork bring one into the shallow wanna-be dihedral to the right of the arete, and perhaps another gaston. Either stay in the shallow area, or utilize the arete on the left. Both exits make this semi-traverse the most classic line on the First Street Boulder (in my silly opinion). ...[more]Browse More Classics in MN
What about adding Andy Raether's problem "Snatch"? He put it up in the early 2000's if I remember correctly, and rated it V11. I remember it being on the side of the boulder not facing the road (if this makes any sense- I was last there about 9 years ago and don't have the clearest memory of the boulder). It was a short little problem with a very heinous hold one had to use.
