Mad Meadows Rock Climbing
Climbing No Pain No Grain
Mad Meadows is one of the best bouldering areas in Leavenworth. Along with Forestlands and the JY boulders it has one of the highest concentrations of problems, and many of the routes here are true classics. The South-facing boulders get plenty of sun and there are a handful of problems that stay in the shade through much of the day when it's hot out.
Park at 5.1 miles up the canyon. Look for a trail that goes up the steep embankment before heading down-canyon along flat ground. Follow this trail for a couple hundred meters to reach the main area, and continue down-canyon along the hillside to get to the Pimpsqueak area. The approach is less than 10 minutes.

I topped out on the right side of the arete above, but someone told me that topping out on the left is easier. Whatever the case, this problem is absolutely incredible. On the easier end of v5, in my opinion....[more] Browse More Classics in WA
