Description 

A small community park to the west of the village of Rock Springs, not to be confused with Abelman's Gorge State Natural Area to the north of town. The rock in the park is mostly quartzite, with some patches of partially metamorphosized sandstone reminiscent of the splatters on Asleep at Devil's Lake. Many ridges protrude from the steep gorge sides, and careful exploration will reveal more climbing and bouldering.

There has been some exploration here in the past, but the rock is generally lower-quality, and this has kept development to a minimum (at least as far as I can tell). That said, there are pockets of higher-quality stone and much potential for those willing to search it out and clean it.

Getting There 

From the village of Rock Springs head west on State Highway 154. About 0.9 miles after passing County Highway D there will be a gravel turnout on the left (southwest) side of the road with parking for a few vehicles, about a quarter-mile further down the road there is a state-owned wayside on the right (northeast) side of the road. Different areas will be more easily accessed from one or the other of these two parking areas. The GPS coordinates listed here will take you to the state-owned wayside.

Access 

While I could not find anything saying climbing in Wiedman Memorial Park is illegal, nor could I find anything saying it is legal. It is almost certainly best to keep any climbing activity here low-profile. Please be respectful and aware of neighboring private land. Pick up some trash on your way in and out of the park. Also avoid the area during deer hunting season, as hunters have been encountered in season and there is no reason to create animosity between user groups.

Use a fingerlock to sit-start from the block at the base of the left-slanting crack. Progress up through a hand jam, possibly a chicken wing (if you can get Helen to open up the kitchen), a knee lock, and then back down the size range through hands to finger locks. Top out on jugs leading left of the bulge on the next rock tier (watch for some loose rock at the top)....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin
