At the "summit"
Will this be around till the weekend (i.e., will you be farming more over the rest of the week)? And how far from Madison, WI?

Edit: Just checked the weather forecast - looks like Thursday and Friday are all set to ruin it for the weekend.

I don't know why some people are being such dicks to the OP. Get a life.

Speaking as someone who has lived in both climbing paradise and climbing hell (currently London), I'd sure go check this place out if it was all I had (and I don't even ice climb).

Ice should be SWEET ! by late Saturday and Sunday. Fun weekend ahead for sure, without the need for an 800 mile drive roadtrip. Woodchuck ATC

The inside of the silo is forming ice too. A couple more days of building in here and we will be climbing the inside...out of the wind!
