After exiting the Glenn Highway, head east on the Old Glenn Highway approximately 7.2 miles to a pullout on the south side of the road (Lat: 61 29.822' North, Long: 149 03.586' West). The climbs are visible on the hillside not far from the road.

From the highway, head up the hillside until one catches the small drainage of the climbs. At the fork, stay right and this climb will start to form.
