About Willow River State Park:

Steep sport climbing in the large amphitheater near Willow Falls. Some of the steepest stone in the midwest. Most climbs tend to be endurance fests on large holds. Climbs range from 5.11 to 5.13 and harder. Climbing is allowed on weekdays when the park is open, but is closed friday and sunday after 12 noon and is not allowed at all on saturday. Fixed gear is strictly not allowed. This area is best for the 5.12 and up climber, although there are a few 5.11's. Approximately 25 routes total. Do NOT rappel from the overlook above the climbs. Across the river from the huge roof area is another cliff face that has bolts, rangers are not pleased that these bolts exist so don't climb there. Access is somewhat tenuous, so don't give the rangers any reason to close Willow to climbing.
Nearest town or city: Hudson
Directions: Take exit 4 off of I94 and follow the signs to the park. Go past the main entrance to the small parking lot about 400 yards further. Follow the trail down the long gradual hill and to the bridge where you will see the amphitheater.
