do you have any photos from the Hogsback where you could show the point of entry on this one? would like to see where you head into the rocks in more detail. This might be interesting, I always wondered if anyone played around in these instead of head around them.
actually you have a great one. in your highest ranked photo, "the old chute variation", the chute is immediately left of the hogsback. it looks like you're going to dead end after the first pitch, but the second pitch gets you out of there.
this was my only time on mount hood so far, but there's tons of areas in those "gates" which look tantalizing in my eye.
