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 route climbs a bolted pillar, 80' right of Better with Bacon. Climb up dikes with the occasional friction move past bolts to a two bolt anchor.This is a newer route and has not seen a lot of traffic, and is somewhat grungy. The quality might get a little better as it cleans up.(There is a second pitch that has some bolts and gear placements. This pitch does not get done often, and I don't know the anchor situation. if you do, please comment.)...[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 :)
