This cool little cliff band/collection of boulders is tucked behind the Surprise Boulder to the West. It's not a far walk at all and is home to one of the top three coolest lines at Devil's Lake, Meth Mouth. There is no possible way to over hype this line. It's RAD! There is also the potential for 10 or so other lines, though none of them really have the necessary features or hold for really hard bouldering, though they may be cool.

Getting There 

Head west from the Surprise Boulder and on the South end of the cliff band is the gem of the area, Meth Mouth.

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

Paul I moved this to it's own separate area rather than attached to the Surprise boulder. That way problems can be added to the Surprise boulder if anyone wants.

This is actually south of the Surprise Boulder, behind it down the slope.
