Owens Main Face

Description 

Small boulder in the middle a potato patch central Wisconsin. Bolts along the top of the is high ball boulder makes top rope set-ups quick and easy. few short trad climbs, and a couple harder routes makes this a great practice area for a green climber.


Getting There 

From interstate 39 outside of Coloma, head west on HWY. 73, then continue on CR D. Then South on W. You should see the tree covered backside of the rock from the crossroads. Park in the lot in the back not in front.

County Road W and D never cross. D crosses County road G and hwy 13 heading west. Which road is Owens Rock on?

I've not visited Owen's Rock but it is clearly marked on the updated Delorme's "Atlas and Gazetteer of Wisconsin". Take 73 west from I39 near Plainfield (not Coloma). Look for CR D (as 73 runs right into it). About two miles on CR D make a left (south) on CR W. Owens Rock looks to be about a half mile down the road.

The map shows that CR D does indeed intersect with CR W. The intersection is WEST of CR G.
