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.

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.
