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.

Getting There 

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.

The Hole V6 7A  Washington : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : Mad Meadows
The Hole is short, powerful, amazing little problem. Start in the massive hole, with the large undercling jugs. Plant your feet high, and reach out to a good sloping edge (at least when you are in this position, it's good). Work the top secret beta, get your feet up and do a delicate topout rockover. One of the greats....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
