Begin on the Victor Creek trail which is located at milepost 20 of the Seward Highway. At the trail head decide whether to hike a frozen creek or continue along the trail.

Creek Access - Hike the frozen creek upstream for approximately 15 minutes to the base of this route, which is located on the north side of the canyon just around the corner from King's Beard. A rarely frozen pool of open water exists in the creek narrows immediately before this route. Negotiating this open water may require waders or rubber boots. Trail Access - Hike the Victor Creek trail approximately 25-30 minutes and either rappel the canyon wall or hike a moderate angle snow gully to the canyon floor. This snow gully is located just above Victor Creek 6, which is also where Victor Creek waterfalls into the canyon.
