1-12-14 Lone Rock river ice impromptu social.


There are two ice columns that form on the northwest bank from the top of the cliff down to the flowing river. These offer a good half day addition to ice climbing at Stephen's Falls.

Getting There 

Along Wisconsin 133 in the town of Avoca, WI. Take 151 West through Dodgeville, WI. Onto Hwy 18, right onto HWY 23 past Gov. Dodge SP, then take a left onto 130, going west, and once you've sighted the Wisconsin River (it's on your right) continue straight onto 133 and park at the wide shoulder along the right side of the road. About 20 min. total from Gov. Dodge SP.
