Forgot the board huh? Well at least you didn't run it over once you got back to the TH! (sorry TEX)
In that N facing line you're looking down from the summit of Hood, if I'm not mistaken the reason there are no tracks in it is because it's f*cking extreme and lines you up with some big cliffs and schrunds before hitting the glacier. There is an old Couloir article about Doug Coombs riding that line. In the pics it just looks impossible. He talked about how he brought along a piece of 2x4 to use as a rap anchor at the bottom of the line, and how other climbers at the top were wondering what the 2x4 was for.
