I spent the summer in Oakridge, OR and went climbing at Hills Creek a few times. I added some of the routes that I was able to get on. It's a beautiful place that is definitely worth checking out, although I will caution you with this. This is definitely adventurous climbing. If you are used to level belays, easy approaches and solid rock, this may not be the place for you. However, if you are looking for a place with no crowds with some sense of mystique, head on down.
Most of the routes worth climbing are 5.10 and above. Be careful of loose rock before making the first clip (from experience) as a fall could potentially be very serious here. Have fun, be safe.
There is a missing piton on The Arete from the Oregon Rock Climbing guide Vol.1.
