Access the Victor Creek hiking trail on the north side of the bridge. The trail will travel through a spruce forest as it climbs and descends back down to the creek. From the highway, hike the trail approximately 1 mile to the first large opening in the trees, which is also a large avi chute and/or drainage valley into Victor Creek. Hike up the chute/valley approximately 20 minutes then veer left and hike the steep drainage to the base of this climb. Ice and snow conditions in the area vary and may require a belay from further below.
