It may be BFR ("Big F%*%*ck'n Rock") near Mauston????
Great crag but it is private land.

Burt, you're just full of knowledge. Thx! I have asked many private land owners, most of them farmers, if I can check out the rock and climb, and I have not gotten a no yet. I've had a harder time finding a farm to goose hunt on! Lol.

I hear ya John. Never hurts to ask certainly and in many cases well worth the effort and the common sense of asking first. I am not real sure (don't know from actual personal experience) but the land owners of BFR are probably just fine if and when asked politely. I do know somebody who knows somebody and I would like to climb at BFR some time myself.

I know, I know, from the look of this photo the line looks great and especially for good ole Wisconsin... There are quite a few great little crags in the area of Mauston.. I was just looking agian at some from the air here where I work.... 2010 state wide aerial photoghraphy jobs....

Yeah if you look at Google Earth it seems like there is a bunch of cliff band to the west of Mauston. Obviously all on private land though. Someone win the lottery so we can buy it! :)

I get to see this stuff from the air in 3D stereo and leaf off (early spring) photography and there are ALOT of crags and exposed rocks in this area. Too bad it ain't like Sweden where I guess you get access to crags on private property as some sort of over all state policy...

I almost had my head taken off by a Bobcat here that was back in a large pocket/crack and jumped out over my head. It's a great crag but very closed at this point.

Anyone know where or what this is?
