Description 

The Mad Cow Boulder is one of the smaller rocks of the Hillcrest boulders, but has some fun problems and is your best bet for warming up. The Mad Cow Boulder is almost perfectly vertical and though fairly short, it's still just tall enough you wouldn't want to fall off the top without a pad. This boulder is known for it's unique bread loaf pinches, high quality solid rock and perfectly flat groomed landing, so long as the Mad Cows stay off it in the winter!

Getting There 

Walk off Hillcrest drive and head a little right through the closed gate. Once through the gate, follow the main trail meandering through a nice boulder field. After a minute or so the trail will turn left and the Mad Cow Boulder will be easily identified sitting almost in the path of the trail strait ahead of you.
