Owens Main Face
|Quincy is closed to climbing, Rattlesnake is open|
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.
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.
Weather station 9.6 miles from here

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.

09/06/2014-Visited boulder for first time; found the main face routes very enjoyable. Tread with care; chossy is prevalent. Mosquitos carried us half way up routes........There is poison ivy set back in taller grass line on main face side. Also, all the previously mentioned top bolts have been removed; only holes and chopped ends remain.
