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.

Do you mean that this is an ice destination in southwest Wisconsin? Or am I just mixed up?

Jon -- is leading allowed?
By Burt Lindquist Administrator From: Madison, WI Feb 29, 2008
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.

Dennis sold half the Quarry to "Todd". He swears he's gonna tap a well and flow ice from the top. That would be pretty sick.
He was talking about doing that and making it a membership thing. If you meet him ask him how that's going.
