About City of Duluth:

If Duluth had no more long frigid snowy winters, less languorous days brought on by happy-hour drink specials, and if Duluth only had world-class bouldering - this town would be a climbing mecca. Instead we're stuck with winter as the longest of our four seasons, cheap drinks abound to help us deal, and climbing that's world-class only if your world goes no farther than the Minnesota state border. These conditions have bred a hardy group of audacious drinkers, imaginative but intrepid adventurers, and bold but humble climbing styles, that can brave cold, rain, and mosquitoes. The hearts of most of Duluth's climbing tribe lies an hour north at Palisade Head, Shovel Point, and the Inland Domes, but modest urban crags in and around town offer enough to keep everyone almost satiated when not up the shore. -excerpt from "Duluth's Urban Cragger"
