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.

Start on the lower left, on holds as low as you dare use (slopier closer to the bottom), and climb up and right to the stranded jug pockets in the middle of the face. Then do the flashy "Fred Nicole finish" by kicking the boulder behind. You don't have to jump onto it or anything, just kick your foot over and touch it, and you're done. Really fun! There is a variant (or the complete line, if you like) that starts on this problem and finishes straight up from the stranded huecos (Cloaca, v11)...[more] Browse More Classics in WA
