This area is an ice climbing destination in southwestern Wisconsin. It consists of about a half-dozen climbs up to 70 feet high. The largest climb is in a private quarry called Quarry Monster; the other climbs are located along the railroad tracks heading north from the parking area and along Hwy X.
The "parking area" is located along Cty Hwy X north of the town of Wyalusing by a large limestone butte across the road from the quarry.
Hey Kris. Leading is encouraged! Go for it. Some of the isolated pillars require a V-Thread to get off (or you can leave screws) though. I am contemplating permanent lowering anchors with the land owners permission of course.
Does anyone know if anything in the area is worth while doing? As I speak, we are in the Tomah, Wisconsin area. We are wanting to find something worthy to play on without having to travel too far...couple hours at most. We will be here for another week or so. Thanks, S&S
News update about Dennis and the quarry. Dennis does not own the any of the quarry anymore. It all belongs to Todd now. Please make sure to stop in and speak with Todd when entering the quarry now. His place is the new house over on the right when first entering. Dennis has had some health issues recently. He suffered a stroke some time early in 2013 according to my understanding but has made quite a bit of recovery since. Saw him briefly on Sat. 1-11-14 when he came out and said hello.
