Featured Route For South Bluff Bouldering
Rock Climbing Photo: The SWEET boulder

Meth Mouth V3 6A  WI : Devil's Lake : ... : South of Surprise Boulder
If The Gobbler is Illinois' biggest sloper, Meth Mouth HAS to be Wisconsin's. You start on the far left end of the feature on a blocky start hold. Traverse the incredible feature, enjoying perfect slopers, move up and left to a perfect ledge and make the crux move (reminiscent of the move to the sloper on Slope of Dadaism, though slightly easier) to the lip. Celebrate having climbed the coolest thing at DL....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

I took an epic journey around the S bluff today, from The Reserve to The Ejaculator, to the depths of Boomtown and over and beyond Burma Rd. Sadly there is very little rock besides what is already posted on MP but I did discover some very nice gorges with streams running through them. There is an especially neat one west of Burma Rd with lots of rock around it but most is rotten. Maybe good for an alpine excursion.
