Ben "Dongler" Kunz and I went to Index yesterday and got thrashed on all the classics, enjoying the sun and a cool breeze... Wait, no, that's all wrong. I had my harness on and was racking up when Ben realized he forgot his harness in Seattle. *Gong!*
We did some problem-solving and tried to acquire a harness from every possible local source: climbers in the parking lot, a guy Ben knows in Monroe, both closed-down gear shops in the Sky valley. Eventually, we drove back to Seattle, Ben got his harness, and we went to 38.
The Neverland area is newly developed and a five-minute hike from the service road on the Far Side. Four small crags offer a dozen routes 5.9-5.10 and an 11a. Bring your helmet, sport climbers, because there's a fair amount of loose rock on some routes. Like the 10c dike above the slab at Lost Boys, the first crag off the trail. Ben ripped off a handhold and took a nice whipper, then tried to kill me with a soccer-ball-sized rock.
