It is certainly a wonderful city. Lots to do and lots of culture! Next time you're in Madison, you should pick up a pack of beer from Karben4. They'r exclusive to Madison, but they make great stuff. There's jack shit for climbing near me. I'm about an hour south of Madison or Milwaukee which is the only close places to climb. Boulders in Madison and Adventure Rock near Milwaukee would be the two I know, though. I ended up building bouldering wall in my basement so I could get some climbing in. As far as outside stuff, there's Governor Dodge State Park (2.5 hours from me) for bouldering and Devil's Lake State Park (3 hours from me) for sport, top rope, and bouldering. I need to move, lol.
