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 20 minutes to the base of this route, which is located on the south side of the creek and immediately downstream of where Victor Creek waterfalls into the bottom of the canyon (Victor Creek 7). Watch out as a rarely frozen pool of open water that exists in the creek narrows just past King's Beard. 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. The base of this snow gully is immediately opposite the creek of this route.
