Routes in First Street Boulder

Description [Suggest Change]

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...

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Just north/east of Whopee Wall on First Street West (about 1400 West First Street).

Wow. This is the best free standing boulder in Duluth. Relatively good landings, some classic problems, and a convenient location. More people need to get out here and give it some respect! Jul 6, 2008
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. Jan 2, 2013

Not sure where this is at Chris. Where would it be in relation to the numbers on the beta photo on this page? I have an inkly of where it could be but not positive. Jan 19, 2013
