All three routes are seen in this photo, including...
Hogwild is the western end of the Hogsback, and is the closest climbing to the campground.
To get to Hogwild, you take a path at the end of the parking lot loop. That is, drive around the parking lot. Right before the loop closes and you exit, there is a path heading north to the river. Take this path, following some telephone poles. The path cuts east and parallels the river, although not too close to the bank. Continue walking for approximately 5 minutes to reach Hogwild.

This is a fun climb that can be a little heady, causes one to think a bit, and requires route-finding skills. Follow the bolts to a blank section, traverse left over the arrete / right-facing corner and follow the line essentially straight to the chains....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

The trail that is marked in the Falcon Guide that takes you to Accessory Dogs above the boulders does not exist, do not go that way :)
