Neverland consists of 4 recently developed crags. The routes here range in difficulty from 5.9 to 5.11. The largest crag, Lost Boys, offers several multi-pitch lines. Smea, Croc, and Hook offer single pitch lines. Because these are newer areas, expect some roughness around the edges-- the approach trails need work and stabilization, the holds may be dirty, and some of the climbs could use a little more brushing. Like much of the climbing at Exit 38, the routes here are a mixed bag. Some are quite nice and others are good simply for mileage close to town.
In comparison to other routes at Exit 38, some of the lines here feel challenging for the grade, but are rated fairly in comparison to other areas.
Hike the road until reaching a small utility building. The approach trail takes off on the opposite side. A 5-10 minute climb brings you to a fork in the trail. Hang right and switchback to the base of Lost Boys, or take a left to reach the base of Smea, followed by Croc.

A fun pitch on top of the first pitch of I Lost My Marbles. Great face climbing on mostly positive holds, with excellent body position and exposure. The finish is more overhanging than the rest of the route and requires some fun layback moves. A 60m rope just barely stretches to the ground...tie knots in the ends or rap back to the first pitch anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in WA

I'm not sure if a good description of Neverland is available in the new edition of the Exit 38 guidebook. Working from the information available online, I've described the routes here using the same numbering schemes that are used on northbendrock.com (Garth Bruce's page). It would be nice to update this site with the route names and FA info if/when it becomes available.
