Access the Victor Creek hiking trail on the north side of the bridge. Hike in approximately 1.5 hours on a well established trail. The trail will travel through a spruce forest as it climbs and descends back down to the river. As the trail descends down to the river and out of the forest, continue on this trail approximately 1 hour on the north side of the valley if previous avalanches make for easy travel. If not, find your way down on to the frozen river and proceed up river, through a narrow canyon. Ascend near the end of this canyon and find your way through alders and Devil's club to the steep ascent to the base of this route. Approximately, 3 hours on approach via this approach.
